Welcome to Nativity Prep!

A Message from the President 

As Nativity begins a new school year, our ongoing mission of educational equity is more important than ever. Right now, our communities are grappling to address issues with health, race, education, and socioeconomic inequities.  Most of Nativity’s students and their families come from historically under-served and overlooked communities. For our students, school is a beacon of hope and a place of refuge where their voices are heard, and they are affirmed every day for who they are and their potential power in this world. It is our commitment to serve our students each day with educational excellence, support, and love to diminish the impacts of inequities today to prepare our students for life beyond Nativity. As President, I am committed to walk alongside our staff, faculty, and Board of Trustees to continue to have Nativity Preparatory Academy be God’s bright light of hope in today’s world.  Our students and graduates, their families, our community, and our world deserve nothing less.

It was a jam packed week at Nativity with interim report cards, NWEA MAP Testing, visits from alumni, a McQuaid service project, an Aquinas virtual admissions meeting, our President’s Reception, a Farm to Family food distribution, lots of virtual tutoring, and the start of virtual STEM Club!

Our students and alumni are off to a great start this year, and our ability to provide in person learning with extensive support is only possible through the incredible community partnerships we have with individuals and programs.

We are so grateful to once again have a busy building full of learning and fun!
