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.
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.
