Welcome to the Greater Woonsocket Catholic Regional School System. I hope that this web site will help to answer some of your questions about our system. The GWCRSS was established in 1972 and consists of 14 parishes and two unique schools serving the needs of Northern Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts. Since that time, thousands of students have been educated in our schools and many are the leaders in their church and community. All of our schools are accredited by the RI Department of Education and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.


Anyone visiting one of our schools feels that they have entered a warm, caring place of learning, where our faith permeates everything we do. Each school has a dedicated staff that has devoted many years to the care and education of their students. All have a Bachelor’s degree and many have a Masters’ Degree in their field of study.


Our curriculum is reviewed yearly by our staff and updated according to national standards. As well as a superb program of study, each of our schools offers extracurricular programs. These include Catholic league basketball and soccer, flag football, drama, choir, and math club to mention just a few.


Whether you are interested in one of our pre-kindergarten programs, or in any other grade, I am sure that you will find an exceptional program in our system and your children will have a wonderful experience.


I hope you will take a few minutes and view our entire web site to see the heart and soul that is the GWCRS. If there are any questions not answered here, please call our regional office for assistance. If you would like a tour of one of schools, arrangements can be made by contacting us.


God Bless,
