Principal’s Message

Welcome to St. Gregory Alfred & Marguerite Hovsepian School.

Our Preschool to 8th grade biliterate institution prides itself in nurturing the young to achieve their optimum potential as learners. We do not take the word “nurture” lightly. We believe learners excel—emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually—in a community that promotes safety. Although we provide our students with the most progressive textbooks with ample enrichment opportunities, our knowledgeable and experienced teachers engage our students by venturing beyond the grade-level standards.

We are in the profession of cultivating conscientious scholars, critical thinkers, creative visionaries, environmentalists, appreciators of the arts, and most importantly, confident Armenian-American Christians. Additionally, we have ventured to embrace the virtues beyond the core curriculum subjects such as Choir, Computer Sciences, Dance, Drama, Gardening, Poetry, and the Visual Arts. Our gardening program, particularly, has enticed the school community to reuse, reduce and recycle.

Finally, the after school sports programs have enthused K-8 students to join the basketball and volleyball teams. Recently, we added chess (as a mental sport) in our after school activities.I urge you to visit our school and experience the cozy atmosphere firsthand. As an adult, the child in you will have difficulty walking away from this inviting environment.
