Nazareth School San Diego


Founded in 1924, Nazareth School San Diego takes its mission seriously. We are a private Catholic elementary school for students from pre-school through eighth grade. Our mission is to develop students' hearts, minds, and bodies in an ever changing society. Nazareth School San Diego is part of an international community of schools owned and operated by the Sisters of Nazareth.

Together as a school community, faculty, staff, students and parents, we hold a set of core Gospel values that drive our educational experiences: love, compassion, patience, justice, hospitality and respect. These values shape and influence everything we do at Nazareth School, and have become for us, “The Nazareth Way.”

Our academic and co-curricular programs are an interactive process involving the students’ spiritual, intellectual, social and physical growth. Our faculty, our students and their families work together to achieve mastery of national, state and local curriculum standards during each student’s nine-year experience at Nazareth School. In our school community, the individual talents of students are nurtured while the needs of students are supported in a collaborative atmosphere.

Nazareth School is fully accredited by the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
