Nazareth Academy High School is a Catholic, private, fully-accredited college preparatory school for young women, sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth.
Embracing faith, family and education,we challenge each student to attain her full potential academically, spiritually, and personally. While focusing on service to God and community, Nazareth Academy High School provides a rigorous academic curriculum and varied extracurricular activities that inspire each student to achieve academic excellence and become a life-long learner in a global society.
At NAHS, we believe that our Catholic faith is the foundation of and the impetus for all that we do both within and beyond the walls of every classroom. Rooted in the example of the Holy Family, we recognize that while each of us is a unique gift of God, we all share the common task of bringing the love, mercy and justice of God to our community, our country and our world.
Nazareth Academy High School boasts a 8 to 1 student to teacher ratio. The small class sizes allow our girls the opportunity to know their teachers and classmates. Through academic rigor and a culture of togetherness, a sisterhood is formed amongst our students that helps create lifelong friendships.
Our educational process is student-centered and not limited by the walls of the classroom. There are many roads to success and we strive to help our Nazareth students discover their unique talents and ambitions. One of the hallmarks of a Nazareth education is that our students graduate remarkably well-prepared for college.

Thanks to the Northeast Times for highlighting senior soccer player Brooke Kane '20! Brooke and the soccer team have had an excellent season so far. We wish them continued success!
Thank you to the Philadelphia Inquirer for recognizing Nazareth Academy for our small class size.
Located in Northeast Philadelphia, Nazareth has a student to teacher ratio of 8 to 1, with an average class size of 15. The national average is just over 24 students per class. Studies have proven when students address concerns that are distracting them from school, and have more availability to teachers, they perform better. So, if a teacher notices something off with a student, they have the knowledge of the student to fall back on in order to successfully help them.
Thank you to Suburban Life Magazine for featuring our girls in their September edition!
