Grey Nun Academy blends the best of what is traditional with the best of what is current. It thrives within the tension of these opposites to create a distinctive environment that creates lifelong learners. Our faculty and staff strive to provide the best possible experience for all students.
The Academy’s strong academic program is flexible by design. The average class size offers a student-teacher ratio of 7:1. This allows for greater depth and breadth in curriculum design and course offerings.
We are 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, independent, Catholic educational institution, we are rooted in the philosophy and mission of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart and St. Marguerite D'Youville. 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.
Technology offers students the opportunity to compete in a global society. To prepare students for lifelong learning in a changing world and success in high school, college, and beyond, the tools and instructional methods used to teach, collaborate, design, present, research, and complete assignments are integrated into the entire curriculum.
Grey Nun Academy students score among the top 10% nationally on TerraNova tests, a standardized testing method used in the United States designed to assess K-12 student achievement in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, vocabulary, spelling, and other areas.
