St. Gregory the Great Catholic School uses the curriculum guidelines of the Department of Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of San Antonio in conjunction with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards. Standards are used for instructional, quarterly and yearlong, curriculum planning. Our teachers use a variety of resources to meet academic goals, i.e. textbooks, workbooks, library resources, iPads, integrated technology, and other innovative teacher developed lessons. These resources allow for mastery of curriculum objectives and expectations. Although we strive to provide a rigorous and challenging academic environment, we are also dedicated to meeting the needs of all our students. All students at St. Gregory the Great Catholic School receive instruction in the core courses of Religion, Reading/ Literature, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies as prescribed by the TCCED “Bell to Bell” schedule guidelines. Students also receive specialty instruction in the areas of Music, Art, Physical Education, Technology, and Spanish.
At St. Gregory the Great Catholic school each day begins with student-led prayer on our Facebook Live Show, StG TV. In addition, our students pray before lunch and at the end of the day in the classrooms before dismissal. Religion is taught as a core class every day. Every Wednesday the student body attends Mass, which is led by individual classes, and clubs throughout the year. Faith formation is paramount; students in 2nd grade prepare for the Sacrament of First Reconciliation and students in 3rd-8th grade have an opportunity to participate in reconciliation twice a year. Students in 3rd grade spend a year preparing for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion. Additionally, students in 1st-8th grade attend a yearly retreat.
All students who have made their First Holy Communion have the opportunity to become an Altar Server. Our community also attends Mass on Holy Days of Obligation and participates in religious services such as the Living Rosary, All Saints Day Parade, Advent Prayer Service & Tree Lighting, Las Posadas, Stations of the Cross, and the Crowning of Mary.
Our mission at St. Gregory the Great is to develop our children spiritually, physically, and academically. To support this growth in our children, we offer a variety of Clubs and Encore classes such as Football, Soccer, Track, Cross Country, Basketball, Volleyball, Baseball, Softball, Garden Club, Ballet Folklorico, Mariachi beginner/intermediate level. Our school community hosts a Trunk or Treat community building event in the fall, United in Spirit Gala, and the annual Fiesta de la Familia Festival; which is an official fiesta event.
