Welcome to our Family!

Dear Interested Students and Parents,

As the Director of Institutional Advancement, I am often asked the question Why Nazareth?. And this question always brings a smile to my face because it is one of the easiest questions for me to answer. Since 1981, when I started my journey as a freshman student, I have taken great pride in being a part of the Nazareth Academy High School community because it is such a wonderful place -- filled with amazing people, numerous opportunities, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and the chance to become a part of a very special family.

As a student, I was truly empowered to become the woman that I wanted to be. I was encouraged to take an active role in my education; I was taught leadership and responsibility; I was exposed to and inspired by an incomparable faculty and staff; I strengthened my Catholic faith and realized the joy of participating in community service; and I was given the opportunity to partake in numerous extra-curricular activities, meet new friends, and enjoy all the fun and memories that high school has to offer. Nazareth Academy is not just a high school -- it's an incredible experience that a girl carries with her for the rest of her life. As a former student and alumna, I can truly say that Nazareth Academy High School is a very special place to be!

Now, years later, I can wholeheartedly say that I feel privileged to be the Director of Institutional Advancement of such a fine institution and to help Nazareth Academy High School continue to spread its mission of faith, family, and education for years to come. In support of that mission, I am pleased to announce the continuation of NAHS' Locked Tuition Plan for the 2014-2015 school year. Investment in an Academy education at Nazareth is a considerable commitment for families who want the best education and the most opportunities for their daughters. As we are sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Family, we are proud of our family-centered environment at Nazareth. We strive everyday to take care of our Nazareth families, the best way we can.

Meeting new students and their families and showing them the potential of a Nazareth Academy High School education, is something I take great pride and joy in. So, if I can be of any assistance to you and your family throughout the admissions process, please do not hesitate to call or email me. I truly look forward to meeting and working with you this year and showing you Why Nazareth? is such a great choice!

Sincerely, Mrs. Jacqui McClernan Makowski, 85
