Nativity Schools

About Nativity Schools

The Nativity School model came to our attention nearly 20 years ago when a local newspaper spotlighted a Nativity school program in the greater Boston area. We were attracted to the qualities that make Nativity schools unique: small size and personal attention, values rooted in Jesuit tradition, and intensive complementary resources, including athletics and supportive services to nurture the whole student.


Addressing the myriad challenges faced by today's young learners -particularly those in multi-ethnic, economically disparate urban centers - requires that organizations like Nativity sustain a long-term, holistic investment in these children and their communities. These efforts require and deserve support. Working as a founding partner with several Nativity schools, we demonstrated our own commitment to supporting their alternative model, and in turn, the excellence they encourage, teach, and exude.
