General School Mission

"Grey Nun Academy is a community committed to a learning process that allows each child to attain a fuller knowledge of self, world and God. As a faith based, Catholic educational institution rooted in the philosophy and mission of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart, our Academy articulates the moral standards implicit in all learning as we make Gospel values real to our students. Through our community's emphasis on peace and social justice, students accept their responsibility to those in need and their role as good stewards of the earth.

We design an academically rich curriculum that meets the unique needs of individual students, respecting the rights, interests and dignity of each child. It is this environment of respect and acceptance that instills these same qualities in our students. Our learning methods foster creativity and stimulate an inquiring spirit. In all, we enrich each child's intellectual, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical development.

We advocate a partnership of teachers and parents as co-educators of our children. Therefore, teachers and parents interact with open communication and cooperation, and we encourage and appreciate parental interest and participation in the school community. Working together, the members of the GreyNunAcademy community educate children to function as productive students in secondary education and to mature as responsible members of their family, their community, their faith and their world.
