Philosophy & Mission

Philosophy of St. Gregory the Great Parish School

St. Gregory the Great is a Catholic school in Milwaukee dedicated to providing children with the skills and attitudes necessary for life-long learning in today’s global society. Thus, as members of the St Gregory the Great Parish Community, we model and share Christian values, beliefs, and heritage. Above all, our community is a partnership of faith where we believe that communication and collaboration are essential among all members.

“Positive People, Learning, Living, and Growing in Christ Through Faith and Service'”

In truth, we believe in the inherent worth of each person and respect the unique qualities of each child. For this reason, since children are our primary focus, the school environment, and curriculum are designed to enhance the development of the child’s spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical life.

Catholic School Morals & Teachings

Social justice concerns are central to our Catholic Christian teaching and community. Thus, we respect and value the diverse nature of our parish, local, and global communities. As a result children are taught and encouraged to minister to the needs of these communities through prayer, education, and service.
