Mission and Beliefs of Nativity School

Our Mission

Our Beliefs

Catholic Identity and Religious Education

  • Your child’s religious education is the fundamental reason Nativity School exists.
  • Traditional truths of the Catholic faith, values rooted in the Gospel of Jesus, and moral principals grounded in Christian social justice essentially define who we are.
  • Our religious values are reflected in the way subjects are taught, the way your child will be treated, and the way you as parents will be incorporated in our endeavors.
  • The spirit of prayer, service, and a personal relationship with Jesus for your child are fostered at Nativity.
Education
  • At Nativity your child is a valued individual with unique physical, social, spiritual, cultural, and intellectual needs.
  • Recognizing that your child learns in different ways, the Nativity School Community strives to provide a variety of instructional opportunities to support learning.
  • A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes your child’s learning.
  • Teachers, administrators, parents, students, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school’s mission.
  • Your child’s self-respect is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff.
The Arts
  • The arts are an integral part of the education Nativity offers your child; they enrich the curriculum and your child’s experience at Nativity by providing connections to religion, math, social studies, science, and language arts.

Global Education
