"When my husband and I began our search for a school for our daughters, we knew that we wanted a school that was more than just a school. We wanted a school where our children would be safe and that we, as parents, would feel secure and at peace with ourselves sending them each day. We wanted a school where academics are superior. We wanted a school where each student knows each other regardless of their age or grade. We wanted a school that embraces their students and families as a part of its community. We wanted a school that would prepare our children academically and spiritually teaching them both the importance of learning and the importance of faith and religious values. At the time, it seemed as if we were asking too much to expect to find a well-rounded school that would encompass all of these qualities, but then we found Saint Gregory the Great School. Our children, while still young, have blossomed here. St. Greg’s is their home away from home and since enrolling them we have never looked back." -Parent, Teresa Lang
