Military Families

The Saint Gregory the Great Catholic School student body has over 600 students, 30% of which come from a military or NATO family. We are honored that these families have chosen our school to educate their children both academically as well as spiritually.

Not only is the military heavily represented within our student body but also within our faculty and staff. Many of the SGGS faculty and staff have served in one of our nation’s branches. Their experiences have helped shape the core of this school and kept us all grounded. We, as a whole, uphold every major military holiday to a very high level on our campus.

Knowing, firsthand for many of us, how challenging the transition from one home to another can be, SGGS strives to make this transition as seamless and as easy as possible. Thank you for your interest in our school, we are happy that you’re here.

Let’s get started!

The email will be forwarded to the business office and the registrar and your child will be disenrolled. Once you know where your child will be enrolling, please have that school send a records request and we will send the academic records to the appropriate school. God Bless and thank you for your service!
