Nativity Preparatory School is a private, tuition-free day school for boys in Grades 5-8, providing a structured, challenging, and supportive educational program for students of all faiths in the New Bedford area.
Founded in the Catholic tradition by a group of lay people interested in education, Nativity Prep seeks to foster the intellectual, spiritual, moral, social, and athletic growth of its students, and to nurture in a small school setting the full potential of their whole character.
Our mission is to help boys of promise and desire become lifelong learners who will contribute productively to the world they inherit.
The school's faculty and staff work closely with students' families and other volunteers, building ties between school and community, and developing the kinds of personal and institutional support that will ensure the continuing success of Nativity students in high school, college, and later life.
