St. Gregory the Great endeavors to holistically educate children. We are dedicated to teaching our students through advanced intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual development. 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.
