A Preparatory Education

Nativity Prep offers students a rigorous academic program, ensured by our full length, extended day and extended school year model. Beginning in 5th grade, Nativity students are in school from 7:30am-6:00pm three nights per week, and until 3 pm all other days.

Academic Excellence

Our rigorous curriculum prepares our students for academic success at top high schools & colleges. 


Students participate in athletic and extracurricular activities to help them grow in mind, body and spirit. 

Extended Day

Three nights a week, students participate in Evening Study where they receive a volunteer-provided hot dinner and the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty, as well as one-on-one tutoring.

Extended Year

Our required summer program runs for 2.5 weeks and includes academic and team-building courses. Students also participate in day camp at a local private school throughout the entire summer.
