St. Mary Nativity School

St. Mary Nativity School believes in the importance of teaching children the Gospel message of Christ.
We help instill strong religious values in our students that will have a positive impact on their morals and values and guide them for the rest of their lives.
Like all schools, St. Mary Nativity focuses on providing a sound educational programthat offers children the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to pursue future educational and career goals.
But as a Catholic elementary school, we offer something more: a christ centered environment where every aspect of school life -- from the classroom to the playground to extracurricular activities -- is conducted in the context of a Christian point of view.
Christ is at the heart of everything we do. We believe this religious dimension of education, coupled with a strong academic program, prepares children to meet all of life's challenges.
By working together as a community St. Mary Nativity School provides children with an environment where they can grow intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.
