Academics

catholicsschool

Nativity Catholic School endeavors to create a learning environment that is safe, faith-filled, and academically challenging. The administration, faculty and staff promote the educational achievement and spiritual development of each child within the context of our Catholic faith.
The academic program at Nativity School consists of a merging of a classroom teaching, class participation and homework. Though a formal religion program is taught in every grade, our Catholic faith and character development permeates throughout every aspect of school life.

The uniqueness and special gifts of each student are recognized and respected. Since all students have various learning abilities, teachers challenge each student to work and achieve to best of his/her ability. A formal inclusion program is in place to assist students who have learning disabilities./difficulties.

*New STREAM program for 2018-2019.  What is STREAMSTREAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
