The Community We Serve
At Nativity Prep, the mission of forming “men and women for others” is not confined to students and alumni. The Nativity spirit of service, excellence and love is shaped by, and shapes, all who take part in the life of the school – from benefactors and volunteers to families and community partners.

"Despite all the preparation and opportunities while at Nativity, the school has become an even greater resource since I have left, supporting me academically, emotionally, socially, and financially. How many people can say that for their middle school?"Anthony Docanto, Nativity Class of Grande ('11), BC High ('15), Boston College ('19)
"There are a lot of schools that serve innercity kids, but Nativity has something much more comprehensive. Yes, we provide skills for later success, but here, from our Jesuit perspective, we also want our students to graduate with the tools to find purpose and meaning in their lives."Volunteer Teacher and Benefactor
"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
