Leading the way to Christ

Application Process

Nativity Catholic School builds a vital community of faith by recognizing that its ministry incorporates a three-fold dimension: God’s message, Christian fellowship, and service to the community. The school strives to accomplish this through the celebration of liturgy and shared prayer, sacramental preparation, religious instruction, school/parish fellowship opportunities and the incorporation of Christian virtues into all areas of the curriculum and school life. Nativity Catholic School welcomes students of any race, color, and national origin.
