Buddies Program

Developing and fostering relationships between students is a critical element of the growth plan for our students at Saint Gregory the Great Catholic School. To ensure that bonds are nurtured and to help young students acclimate to their growing roles in the school, PreK students are assigned a 6th-grade buddy, Kindergarten students receive a 7th-grade buddy and 1st graders are paired with an 8th-grade buddy. Older buddies will accompany the PreK-1st grade to many of their functions such as weekly Mass and events such as the Halloween Carnival and Santa Shop. They celebrate the holidays together and spend quality time together on a regular basis throughout the school year.

    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.
