Nativity of Mary is an accredited Preschool-8th Grade Catholic school that has been dedicated to educating the whole child in mind, body and spirit for more than 60 years.

We offer a tradition of academic excellence, with standardized test scores that are consistently well above average. We are recognized as a state leader in reading for our use of the Orton-Gillingham techniques, a hands-on program that caters to all styles of learning. The program was originally designed for special education, but pioneered for mainstream use by a Nativity teacher. 

We embrace, welcome and celebrate each child's unique gifts and talents. In a time when many school districts are dealing with budget cuts and growing class sizes, Nativity is dedicated to guaranteeing small class sizes, with an average of 17 students per class, allowing our teacher to give individual attention to each students, and ensure that all their academic and emotional needs are being met. We have a vibrant, active, family-centered environment and a broad range of extracurricular activities for all ages beginning in kindergarten. 

But we believe what really sets Nativity of Mary School apart is how we put our faith into action in our relationship with others and through year-round community service projects. Our students learn you are never too young or too small to make a difference  in the lives of others and the world around you. They develop compassion, understanding and a sense of pride through serving others in our community and beyond. Our students leave Nativity academically prepared and socially responsible.

Whether $10 or $10,000, the staff, students and parents of Nativity of Mary School thank you for your kind investment and for making a difference in the life of a child!
