Nativity School is a faith community in the Catholic tradition.
We strive to build community in our school, families, parish, and neighborhood.
We exist as an extension of the family and offer our students a quality education within a positive atmosphere of cooperation, concern and caring.
Christian values are taught through instruction, example, worship, and service.
We are committed to the growth of the whole child recognizing and appreciating each individual’s self-worth, valuing his or her dignity as a child of God, and respecting the cultural diversity of each member.
We strive to accomplish this by promoting a stimulating educational environment, a love for learning, and a desire to seek peace and justice in our world.
We value the family and recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children.
We rely on their involvement and support of school policies and programs.
Nativity School stresses the gospel message as a way of life and a basis for responsible decision-making.
We endeavor to send forth students equipped with the personal confidence, academic skills, and religious commitment necessary for making a viable contribution in today’s Church and society.

To me, Nativity is the little school with the big heart. Catholic education develops Christian character alongside academics. Families are very involved and most are down-to-earth people; Nativity does a great job of avoiding the pretentious atmosphere that characterizes some private schools in the area. Beautiful campus and constantly improving in all ways. Some class sizes can be quite large and there is a waiting list for most grades now that the secret is out about this wonderful school.
