A Jesuit Education: Forming Men for Others
As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Nativity Prep does more than transform one young man’s life- it forms compassionate “men for others” committed to serving their families, communities and the common good. Nativity Prep is an official educational apostolate of the USA Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus, building on a global education tradition that is over 400 years old.
Grad at Grad
The “Grad at Grad” is a list of five characteristics that all graduates of a Jesuit school should attain by graduation. Nativity students demonstrate these characteristics and grow in them during their time, and beyond.
Open to Growth
Nativity students are challenged academically and spiritually and learn to be open to these challenges.
Nativity’s rigorous curriculum produces students who are ready for academics in high school.
Through religion courses, regular masses and a deep tradition of Jesuit education, Nativity grads explore their spirituality.
The Nativity community is filled with love, and our students and alumni can attest to the love they feel at Nativity.
Committed to Doing Justice
From climate change rallies to working with tutors to serving the community themselves, Nativity graduates understand what it means to do justice, and many alumni go into careers of service.
"Over the past 28 years I have been amazed to watch this school grow from the bold idea of a few passionate believers into the thriving and sustained reality that is Nativity Prep. I am privileged to be a part of the unwavering commitment to a mission of self-less service, inviting underserved families in Boston to the opportunity of a high-quality, full-scholarship Jesuit education."Brian P. Maher, President
"When I returned to Nativity to tutor students, the boys asked me a lot about my experience in school. Thinking back to the support I got, I tell them, ‘Remember, Nativity will always be there for you.’ It’s crazy for me to think that thanks to Nativity, my kids will be able to say ‘my dad went to college’."Ivan Mejia, Nativity Class of Kostka (’12), Roxbury Latin ('16), Boston College (’20)
"Now that I've graduated, I realize how many more opportunities I have than if I had gone to public school. Going here for free is an amazing blessing thanks to my sponsors. It’s opened doors for me and has given me 74 classmates that I now consider brothers."Joseph Ngnombouowo, Nativity Class of Brebeuf (’18), Noble & Greenough School (‘22)
