The selection of a school for your child is an important decision. Nativity School welcomes parents of prospective students to spend some time in the building during the school day.

Round Up & Application Review
Incoming Kindergarten and 1st grade students will be invited to attend a Round-Up session in March where we work with the children individually and in small groups to assess their readiness and get to know the youngest prospective members of the Nativity community.
Students who apply for admission for grades 2 through 8 are assessed through a thorough review of the educational records and information we request. Because our resources for extra services are limited, we may need to have a prearranged conversation with parents in order for us to determine if we can meet your child’s academic needs.
Within two weeks of Entrance Testing or Kindergarten Round Up you will receive an Acceptance Letter with the results of the testing, or receive a phone call to set up a time to discuss your child’s needs. A meeting with the teachers and/or the principal may be needed to gather more information about your child or to provide you with more information about the programs and services available at Nativity.
Ed Choice Applications will be sent to families who may be eligible to apply for the EdChoice Scholarship from the Ohio Department of Education. Due dates are found on the forms.
Financial Aid Application
Parish members may submit a request for parish financial aid via the FACTS program when you complete the online enrollment process for your child.
Once your child is accepted for Admission you will be asked to complete some additional forms online. These forms must be completed by their due dates in order for your child to start school.
All families who are new to Nativity will be assigned a seasoned Nativity Buddy Family to help welcome them to the Nativity community and answer all the questions a new family may have. New families and the Buddy Families will be invited to attend an Ice Cream Social in early June and some other events through the summer.
Join us for the first day of school and the opening prayer service.
