Student Sponsorship Program
Thank you for your interest in learning more about the impact of our Student Sponsorship program. Because Nativity Prep is both tuition-free and entirely privately funded, benefactors play an essential role in providing the educational opportunities and postgraduate support that Nativity students count on to get to and through college. For most of our history, Nativity has run a Student Sponsorship program to help cover the cost of a Nativity education. Currently we have two levels of student sponsorship and are excited to add more opportunities in the near future.
Individual Student Sponsorship
All students attend Nativity Prep on a full scholarship. Student Sponsors commit to a minimum annual gift of $6,000 to defray a portion of the cost of educating one student. Each Sponsor is matched with a particular student and enters into a rewarding personal relationship with a Nativity student. In addition to invitations to school-wide and special events, Sponsors receive communications from their students and share in their student’s accomplishments in the classroom, on the playing field, and in the community. So, even if you are unable to attend special events, you’ll feel a meaningful connection to your student.
For those who are looking to make an even larger impact on the lives of Nativity students, we offer a Class Sponsor opportunity. A $25,000 gift in a single year will underwrite part of the cost of an entire class at Nativity. Class Sponsors are matched with a class and enjoy a number of opportunities to engage more deeply in the life of that class. Invitations to select events and special recognition for generosity at this level will accompany the benefits of receiving periodic communication from and about the students in the sponsored class. The school and students benefit greatly from generosity at this level, since it helps makes the Nativity journey possible for an entire cohort of students.

"The best argument we can make for supporting Nativity is to visit, to see the work and impact and spend time with the students. The boys are highly respectful and bright. You can really tell that these are formative years for them and can see the results."George and Luanne Nugent, Student Sponsors
"Our friends got us interested in Nativity’s model, but it was visiting and seeing the amount of time and effort the boys put into their education and what’s expected of them that inspired us to get involved."Peter and Meredith Murphy, Student Sponsors
"It’s a robust education, forming men for others and educating the whole person. Nativity is not just about the ‘what’ you’re learning, but also about the ‘who’ you are."Paul Daoust, Former Chair of the Board of Trustees
