About Us

About Our School

St. Gregory’s College, established solely through the efforts of the Catholic mission in 1928 and named after Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604), has developed into a unique institution sought after by discerning minds who seek to partake of its quality of education planked on the philosophy of educating “the whole of the human person”: his intellect, his heart, his will, his physique, his character and lastly, his soul, i.e. physical, mental, academic, moral and spiritual development. With an unbroken history of ninety (90) years, it remains the bedrock of academic excellence and character formation with an array of distinguished Gregorian’s who have left their footprints in the sands of time.

Our college has reasons to be proud of its long and strong tradition coupled with its enviable achievements, making it our prayer and our hope that present and future generations will be inspired by the past and in such a way that their own lives will be characterized by integrity and a highly developed spirit which will, in turn, further strengthen the tradition and achievements of the school in the years to come.

Our Vision Statement

Our vision is spelt out in our College motto: Pro Fide et Scientia (for Faith and Knowledge). As a Catholic Institution of repute, we bring up students with the fear of God and unmatched quest for excellence, and we are good at what we do.

Our Mission

To train students for excellence and leadership positions in all areas of human endeavour and to produce gentlemen that are neither deficient in learning nor in character, in the society.
