On July 9th parents of ST. Great Catholic Academy was blindsided shocked and saddened by the announcement that our school would be permanently closed effective August 31st.  The St. Gregory family views this decision, made without consultation and input from teachers and the HAA, as total disregard for us all.  In the midst of the Covid pandemic, this decision has now compounded the educational direction and mental health of students, as well as teachers and support staff who have selflessly provided decades of dedicated service.

We are hurt and disappointed that we stakeholders were not given an opportunity to band together to help raise funds and seek financial support as we have proven time and again, that we are capable of doing.  We also find it counter intuitive and frankly dangerous that in the midst of a pandemic our children are being forced to leave a school where they can be spaced safely, into crowded schools. We will not sit back, but will fight for what is right and just for our children. We implore the Dioceses of Brooklyn and Queens to sincerely reconsider this decision in the interest of our staff, parents and students, for a vibrant Catholic community, for St. Gregory to stand for another 108 years.
