Nazareth School Mission

  

It is the mission of Nazareth School to teach and guide students from various backgrounds in their spiritual, academic, physical, and social development.

As a Catholic institution, Nazareth School community members integrate the charism and core values of the Sisters of Nazareth into the educational experience.

It is the school’s aim to nurture mind, body and spirit in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust in God and to contribute to the larger community through service, worship and spreading the Gospel message.

 

Nazareth School Philosophy

 

The Nazareth School faculty and staff work in partnership with parents, the primary educators of their children, to provide a quality Catholic education.

God is the center of Nazareth School, and each child is a member of His family, created in His image.

Students develop a strong relationship with God, and grow in the rich traditions of the Catholic faith, through prayer, sacramental celebration and service to others. Gospel values are practiced daily.

Nazareth School is committed to building a bond of community among students, faculty, parents, religious and clergy.  Students embrace and celebrate social and cultural diversity.

Through a challenging academic curriculum relevant to the needs and abilities of the students, the children are prepared for higher education, to assume responsible citizenship, and to practice moral integrity in an ever-changing world.
