At Nativity Preparatory Academy, every faculty and staff member is fully committed to creating an environment that prepares students intellectually, morally, and spiritually to succeed at high school and beyond.

With experience in both their chosen subject areas and inner-city education, our teachers bring a unique perspective to their positions that allow them to genuinely “connect” with our students. We also have two teacher’s assistants who add to the learning environment and oversee after-school programs, tutoring sessions, and Saturday activities.

The overall student-faculty ratio at Nativity Preparatory Academy is seven students to each faculty member. This small class size ensures that each student receives the attention he or she deserves.
