Mr. Gregg became involved with the International Baccalaureate at Senn in 2007 as the Theory of Knowledge instructor for all IB Diploma Programme students. When Senn High School was approved by CPS in 2010 to pursue authorization for the IB Middle Years Programme, Mr. Gregg was selected to lead the effort as the programme's coordinator.

Mr. Gregg is also the Director of Admissions and Recruitment and has overseen a roughly 40% increase in enrollment at Senn High School since 2012.

Inquiries about the IB, other school programs, applications, and admissions can be directed to him.
