A Greenwich Catholic education incorporates the hallmarks of traditional Catholic education and pairs it with contemporary learning. Our program focuses on educating the whole child and prepares each GCS student to enter high school and the world as a well-rounded global citizen.
Greenwich Catholic School provides students with vast learning opportunities, academically, socially and spiritually. We support the continuous improvement of student achievement and our curriculum was designed not only to meet but to exceed state and national standards. During the 2018-2019 school year, our faculty has developed a proprietary scope and sequence curriculum under the guidance of nationally renowned educator and curriculum expert, Dr. Lisa Riegel.
Socially, we offer many extracurricular activities, including sports and clubs. There are programs after school that include choices such as drama, writing, arts and crafts, photography, Zumba and karate. GCS students grow spiritually through their religion lessons, frequent liturgical celebrations (including First Friday masses), virtues of the month, community service and Prayer Buddies.
Our curriculum at GCS is enhanced by the use of the daily use of technology in each classroom. Students in Pre K through Grade 8 use Smart Boards regularly and every child has access to and learns to use desktop and laptop computers as well as iPads. The technology curriculum at GCS includes coding, keyboarding, digital citizenship, proper use of the internet for communication and research, and gives students the opportunity to learn many software programs, such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, and apply it to their school work. Teachers enhance their daily instruction with programs such as the Google Classroom, flipped classroom, WebQuests, Skype lessons and more.
