Comment on : Grey Nun Academy Announces Two Spring Open House Enrollment Events for the 2012-2013 School Year


Grey Nun Academy Announces Two Spring Open House Enrollment Events for the 2012-2013 School Year

 Grey Nun Academy (GNA), the only private, Catholic, co-educational elementary school in Bucks County and a 2009 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, is pleased to announce its spring open house events happening on March 23rd and April 18th where prospective students and their parents are invited to come and see why GNA has been such a beloved success for nearly 50 years. The school has also come to an arrangement with Holy Redeemer that will provide for the future of GNA in its current location through at least 2017 as a strategy is developed to ensure a solid future.

“Grey Nun Academy’s mission has always been highly regarded for teaching and living the core values of peace, social justice and compassion across its educational curriculum and through its community outreach programs both near and far,” said Sister Julia Lanigan, President of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart. “We’re glad the school has the support of Holy Redeemer, an organization that understands and appreciates our mission.”

Recently, Holy Redeemer purchased the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart’s 90-acre campus that includes Grey Nun Academy, D' Youville Manor, a personal care facility, and the Grey Nuns’ Motherhouse. There are currently no plans in place to develop the land.

“Holy Redeemer has great respect for Catholic education and we appreciate the mission and values of the Grey Nun Academy,” said Denise Collins, executive vice president, Holy Redeemer. “We are glad that Grey Nun Academy is developing a long-range plan that will enable the academy to continue to deliver an exceptional education for its students well into the future and appreciate the opportunity to participate in the process.”

GNA’s spring open house enrollment events include: Open House classroom visits, full school tour and opportunity to dialogue with current parents on Friday, March 23rd and Wednesday, April 18th from 9 AM to 11 AM. People can learn more about the school by visiting www.gnaedu.org or calling 215-968-4151 to set an individual appointment at a time that’s convenient to them.

“We look forward to many more years providing students with an academically rich curriculum in which to thrive and where they are also taught to respect the rights, interests and dignity of every person so they can mature as responsible members of their family, their community, their faith and the world,” added Dr. Patricia Grove, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees, Grey Nun Academy.

Grey Nun Academy has been the recipient of many accolades and awards, most recently from the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youths, recognizing GNA as a 2010 Top School in Pennsylvania.  In 2009, GNA was recognized in Washington, D.C., as a 2009 U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.  GNA holds accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
