Diocese Parent Satisfaction Survey Dear Parents: As part of our goal to serve the students and families of the Diocese of Richmond Catholic Schools, we would like to know how satisfied you are with the programs and services currently offered to you and your child/ren. In order to assess our performance and your experience, we ask that you complete this brief survey. This should take approximately 15 minutes of your time. We value your opinion and will use your input to ensure that we continue to meet your expectations. This is an anonymous survey and all responses will be aggregated for review purposes and will remain confidential. Our office will close the survey on Monday, December 16, 2019. If you have more than one child at a school, you may choose to complete another survey or have your answers reflect your overall observations.

Thank you for entrusting the education and care of your children to us each day. Click here to take the survey: Survey Link

In Christ,

    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.
