For more than 30 years, this independent, coed college preparatory school has been committed to educating Tucson's talented and diverse youth. The Gregory School (now offering grades 5-12) has a proud history and a strong reputation in the Tucson community for providing students an unparalleled educational experience that goes beyond strong academics.
We recently underwent a name change from St. Gregory College Preparatory School, and believe our new name better reflects who we are today and where we are headed. On a daily basis, the mission of the faculty and staff at The Gregory School is to challenge and support students to achieve excellence in character, scholarship, leadership, and innovation, preparing them to make a positive impact in the world through pursuing their passions, appreciating and creating beauty, and solving problems.
We are able to provide this extraordinary educational experience because we embrace the structure and philosophy of being an independent school.
What it means that The Gregory School is an independent school
The Gregory School is the only school in Southern Arizona accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS). We are also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
An independent school is governed by a Board of Trustees, and thus is independent in governance and finance from any public or religious entity. The benefits of being an independent school are numerous. Independent schools can provide an individualized, high quality education of the "whole child". Personal and social growth and nurturing of a civic conscience go hand in hand with the importance of developing intellectual curiosity and abilities. The commitment to challenging academics is strengthened by an independent school's dedication to conveying the importance of hard work, leadership, personal responsibility and good citizenship.
Being an independent school benefits all of our students in school and beyond
The Gregory School offers small classes, engaging faculty, strong academic programs, advanced technology, outstanding arts education, bountiful enrichment and leadership opportunities, competitive and inclusive athletic programs, and opportunities for international travel. Our positive, helpful and nurturing community provides the foundation for a high quality academic and social experience for all of our students.
Our students find their voice and their passions at The Gregory School. They have written award-winning plays and newspapers, won numerous State athletic championships, performed in dramatic and musical shows, competed regionally and even internationally in a variety of academic contests, made a difference through community service, and so much more.
The programs and faculty at The Gregory School prepare students well to face the challenges of college and life beyond school. Nearly all our students go directly to college after graduation, with many offered admission to top universities and colleges in the United States and abroad.
