Overview

Saint Gregory’s School was founded in 1962 with the express purpose of providing a rigorous educational program in an environment driven by values that creates students with a strong moral foundation. While Saint Gregory’s is a Roman Catholic school, we serve students of several faiths and welcome diversity in all its forms. Saint Gregory’s is co-educational at the early childhood levels with an emphasis on providing the necessary skills to be a diligent life-long learner. In grades 1-8, Saint Gregory’s provides a single-sex education to boys only with an emphasis on strong literacy skills in the Lower School. The Upper School provides the boys with a solid core education as well as strong exposure to the Arts, physical fitness, technology and community service in order to prepare them to attend the most challenging secondary schools.
