A Message from the President
As the journey of our school year continues, I want to take a moment to update you on the amazing things taking place at Nativity. At the beginning of our 2021-22 school year, we made the decision to provide a full schedule of in-person academics, enrichment activities, and social-emotional support for our students as they navigate these difficult times. This has created a sense of normalcy during a time of uncertainty as the pandemic and its many impacts continue.
Nativity has an empowered group of students who have chosen a journey of educational excellence. Because of their commitment, and the dedication and hard work of our exceptional faculty, we are celebrating that 65% of the students achieved honor roll, high honor roll, and high honor roll with distinction! This rewards our students for their efforts and inspires all of us.
As we look forward to spring and graduation, we are already working to recruit our next class of students. These future students will keep the mission of Nativity alive for years to come. Every day, we are actively looking to find new students who will become the next leaders at Nativity and in our world. Nativity is a faith-based and inclusive community that supports students as they become the best version of themselves. We encourage anyone with a student entering 5th or 6th grade to call us or complete the online pre-application form to learn more about how to join the Nativity student family!
As President of Nativity, it is my responsibility and calling to be a steward of your time, talent, and treasures to ensure that God’s love permeates our community, allowing the dreams of our students, alumni, and their families to be fulfilled. We continue to be humbled and grateful as God works with us on this great mission. Be blessed!
