3 Reasons to Thank a Sister Today

Unlike most Catholic schools, Guadalupe Regional Middle School (GRMS) is sponsored by 3 different religious congregations - The Marist Brothers of the Schools, The Edmund Rice Christian Brothers, and The Sister of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament.

The Sisters have been part of the RGV for over 165 years after the first 4 volunteers were recruited from France. They spent a year in Galveston learning to speak English and Spanish before moving to Brownsville. In Brownsville, they lived in an unfurnished warehouse before a small home was built for them. Here are 3 reasons to thank a sister:

1. They opened the very first school in Brownsville.

In 1853, they opened the very first school in Brownsville, 20 years before a public school system was established here. They printed their own text books on a small hand press. Later, they helped open other schools, as well.

2. They create access to English Language classes at their Villa Maria Language Institute.

The Villa Maria Institute offers language courses in French, Spanish, English, Italian, and German for children, adolescents, and adults. They are known for creating access to English language courses for people who may not be able to afford them otherwise.

3. True to their charism, they have supported the mission of GRMS for 15 years to create access to quality, Catholic education for low-income families.

Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament have served as Trustees, Board Members, faculty members, and other valued members of our school community since our opening in 2002. They are whole heartedly committed to advancing the mission of GRMS. They also have a tuition assistance program at Incarnate Word Academy.


Guadalupe Regional Middle School (GRMS) is an accredited, tuition-free, private Catholic school for boys and girls in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, awarding full scholarships to qualifying students who desire but cannot afford a quality Catholic education.
