School Profile


Saint Gregory the Great Catholic School is AdvancED accredited and the Diocese of Richmond is AdcancED accredited as the 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 isn’t 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.


The basic curriculum consists of classes in religion, mathematics, language arts, reading, science, social studies, as well as semi-weekly classes in physical education. Each class also participates in weekly art, computer, library, and music classes. Spanish is offered once weekly in grades kindergarten through grade five, three times weekly in grades six and seven, and five days a week to grade eight students. Eighth graders, who qualify, are able to take Geometry, Algebra 1, and Spanish 1 for high school credit. Further information regarding the curriculum is posted on the Diocese of Richmond website.
