Children are educated to carry on the mission of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart and they are all about service to the suffering, peace and social justice. So much better in philosophy than Catholic parochial schools. I also like that they welcome all faiths and cultures which also means more diversity. The kids that go to Grey Nun are some of the nicest kids around.
Our children have been at Grey Nun Academy for 6 years, and while it was great before, it's exceptional now. The new Head of School is a very effective, intelligent individual who has her finger on the pulse of current best practices in independent schools and education in general. She's made a significant investment in technology, and nicely incorporates service into the educational process. As a Dad, I have met a lot of nice guys (other Dads) through the school and really like the families there in general. I feel like the tuition is great compared to nearby NJ private schools that cost 3x's as much...and the technology, faculty, and small class sizes + and really nice school campus make it all worthwhile.
There are three divisions at the school (lower, middle and upper). In my child's division I think the teachers are very effective at laying the necessary foundation to prepare students for the global world we live in today.
Contrary to national statistics you read out, students at Grey Nun Academy are more determined than most children these days. These students are persistent in everything they do and with a smile to boot!
A complete holistic approach to teaching and nurturing. A family environment you don't get at any other schools in the area.Before Grey Nun Academy my child had friends, now at Grey Nun Academy we have family!
I am so grateful for all the hard work the new Head, Mrs. Kost, and her team, have put into Grey Nun Academy to continue the outstanding academic standards the school has been known for over the last 50+ years! Way to go Mrs. Kost!
Students at Grey Nun Academy see each other as human beings who all have something to contribute to this world. They respect and care for one another in ways unheard of in other local schools. The school has a pairing partner program where each grade is paired for the entire year with another grade, creating an environment of understanding and respect.
