What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

Our educational process is student-centered and not limited by the walls of the classroom. There are many roads to success and we strive to help our Nazareth students discover their unique talents and ambitions. One of the hallmarks of a Nazareth education is that our students graduate remarkably well-prepared for college.

Nazareth's small class sizes, faculty involvement, and low student-to-teacher ratio foster an atmosphere of personal attention for every student. The close relationship that develops between students and faculty encourage learning that is meaningful and relevant.

What is your mission statement?

Nazareth Academy High School is a Catholic, private, fully-accredited college preparatory school for young women, sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth.

Embracing faith, family and education, we challenge each student to attain her full potential academically, spiritually and personally.

While focusing on service to God and community, Nazareth Academy High School provides a rigorous academic curriculum and varied extra-curricular activities that inspire each student to achieve academic excellence and become a life-long learner in a global society.
