Dear Friends of Nazareth Academy High School,

On behalf of everyone who makes up our Nazareth Academy High School family I welcome you to our website.

Nazareth Academy High School is a private Catholic preparatory high school for girls in grades 9-12. Imbued with the mission and charism of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth our young women experience family at their very first encounter with our faculty and staff along with our students and their parents. There is a 9:1 student faculty ratio, in which one finds a strong academic curriculum with a variety of music, sports, and extra-curricular activities that enables our students to be well-rounded faith-based women.

Our students find themselves immersed in an educational atmosphere as we share campus space with Holy Family University, Nazareth Academy Grade School and Alpha House Nursery and Pre-school.

Students from all areas make up our student population including: Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania and Burlington, Camden, and Mercer Counties in New Jersey.

Naz because… it is what we live and breathe. Our families choose Nazareth because we are a family. Here at Nazareth we ensure academic success along with the opportunity to become the faith-filled young women who leave us and make their mark on the world. Each student that joins our Nazareth family knows her uniqueness is welcomed and will add to the richness of all that Nazareth Academy High School is!

As you peruse our website I hope you will experience at least something of what our Nazareth girls experience each and every day and that this experience will lead you to our doorsteps.

God bless!

About Naz

"Embracing Faith, Family, and Education"


"Naz's where you belong."  How will you finish the sentence, "Naz because..."?


Our student to faculty ratio of 9:1 allows our teachers to interact with students 1-on-1, providing constant help and support.

Campus Life

Our activities provide a diverse set of opportunities for spiritual, social, physical, and intellectual growth for the students.


Learning about commitment, dedication, hard work, discipline, and teamwork not only helps on the field, but in the classroom as well.

Fine Arts

The Fine Arts at Naz allow students to release their creativity, whether it be through song and dance or a piece of fine art.

Giving to Naz

We are called to give to "Nazareth" - not the building, but to “Nazareth” the home...our home.
