Give A Warm Welcome To... ...our newest Saint: King Cactus Jaxon of Virginia Beach, a Registered Therapy Dog, who will join us on Fridays at SGGS. “Jax” is a Standard Poodle, therefore, he is hypoallergenic which means it is rare for him to trigger allergies even when a person has an allergy to dogs. Therapy dogs are used in schools to aid in building student confidence, provide comfort, provide companionship, and promote emotional well-being and positive school culture. If there are any questions you may direct them to Kyra Kruger, our school counselor and Jax’s handler.

    Saint Gregory the Great Catholic School is AdvancED accredited and the Diocese of Richmond is AdvancED accredited as a school system.

    AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED is far from a typical accrediting agency. Their goal is not to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools improve.
    Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, AdvancED serves as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations.
