PROPRIETOR’S MESSAGE

The Catholic Church believes education is an integral part of her God-given mission on earth and in faithfulness to this mission has worked determinedly over the centuries to establish educational institutions across the world. The Church, in her wisdom, views education as essential in preparing her children for what they must be and for what they must do to fully realize the will of God as they work to care for God’s creation- the sublime purpose for which they were created.

In following the same path, the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos has over the years established different formal educational institutions ranging from primary to secondary schools, college of education and university. Currently the Archdiocese boasts of a total of over thirty nursery and primary schools, fourteen secondary schools, three skill acquisition centres and two tertiary institutions (a College of Education and a University).

Some of these institutions are coeducational while others are not; and to the glory of God, St. Gregory’s College, founded 27th January, 1928 (92 years ago) is the oldest of all the schools in the Archdiocese.

We are grateful to God for the life of the College and all those who have, at different times, managed the affairs of the College and for the beautiful crop of “Gregorians” who have graduated from it. We pray to God to continuously bless the College and all those associated with it. Amen.

Most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martin

Metropolitan Archbishop of Lagos and College Proprietor.

 

WELCOME MESSAGE

St. Gregory’s College was founded on 27th January, 1928 by the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos through the instrumentality of Bishop Ferdinand Terrien for the purpose of giving young boys a holistic education that is built on  two pillars – fear of God and sound knowledge of all there is to know. This explains the motto of our beloved College Pro Fide et Scientia (For faith and knowledge). 

In faithfulness to the vision of the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, the Management of the College since inception, has constantly placed the highest premium on these core values. On these pillars rest the source and summit of our College and of all who are associated with it.

In St. Gregory’s College, we hold dear the words of Francois Rabelais that “A child is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be lit”. In order to effectively achieve this goal, our daily quests and undertakings include giving our students a solid spiritual foundation, developing their potentials, helping them to be competitive and bold, creating an exciting environment for them, encouraging them to be independent thinkers, building their sense of self-esteem, ensuring their voices are heard and guaranteeing their health and wellbeing.

Our curriculum serves as a bedrock for this goal because it offers our students opportunities to soar in any sphere of life that they choose and wherever they choose. We equip students to study anywhere in the world after their graduation by preparing and offering them opportunities to sit for local and international examinations. And in a world where computer technology has taken the center stage, our students are well grounded in the prerequisite knowledge that puts them ahead of their peers in the world of computer technology. They graduate from St. Gregory’s College with exceptional knowledge and ability in Coding and Robotics.

After more than ninety years of a fruitful existence, St. Gregory’s College has come to be known globally as one of the foremost formation grounds for young men who are destined to make the world a better place. Our holistic formation gives our students the added advantage that makes them outliers. Their practically enriched academic curriculum is driven by the moral formation that makes it integral. Our enviable landscape makes learning, acquisition of skills and sporting activities worthwhile.

We welcome all who visit our College website. We are sure you will find helpful and important information about this great institution of learning. This site will give you a glimpse of what St. Gregory’s College is all about and how you can be a part of our success story.

Thank you.

Our Values

In St. Gregory’s College, we hold dear the words of Francois Rabelais that, “A child is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be lit”. In this light, we aim to:

Community of Shared Vision

Picture
St. Gregory’s College is a community of shared vision, trained and working together with this common purpose. Open to students and staff of all religions, all economic levels and all tribal and regional origins, the College encourages the model of a unified family, and strives to develop individual talents and gifts within that family, with deep respect for the traditional values of Nigeria.
One of the specific contributions of St. Gregory’s College educators is that they are oriented to certain values. Our colleagues at St. Gregory’s College pledge themselves to the moral development of their students. Development of religious principles and moral values is central to the curriculum, not just in religion courses, retreats and religious services. Our religious education is not for the sake of proselytising non-Catholic students but to help develop in all of our students lasting moral principles.

Cura Personalis

Personal care and concern is the hallmark of St. Gregory’s College education. For such a relationship of authenticity and truth to flourish between teacher and student, mutual trust and respect that grows out of a continuing experience of the other as a genuine companion in learning is required. It means, too, being keenly conscious of and sensitive to the institutional environment of the school, being alert as teachers and administrators to the complex and often subtle network of norms, expectations, behaviours and relationships that create an atmosphere for learning. Praise, reverence and service should mark the relationship that exists not only between teachers and students but also among all members of the school community.

St. Gregory’s College

Picture
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 two (92) 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.
