Enrichment

Augmenting a strong core curriculum that places students in the top ten percent of the nation, St. Gregory extends and reinforces learning with a diverse array of enrichment activities to maximize student potential.

Creative thinking strategies such as fluency, flexibility, originality and elaboration are infused into the curriculum. Mind Benders and daily logic problems increase inductive and deductive reasoning skills and analytic thinking. Bloom’s Taxonomy, WebQuests, Web 2.0, and other multi-media products stretch the minds of our students.
