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 9 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.

We are proud to announce the outstanding accomplishments of the Nazareth Academy High School Class of 2019:
Congratulations to the following Nazareth students who earned Honors during the 2018-2019 School Year.
This past weekend, our Rocket Panda teams of Stardust and Space Oddity competed in the Team America Rocketry Challenge. Both teams advanced to the final round for the Championship, but alas, gusty winds took our rockets elsewhere from where they needed to be! But no worries--our Rocket Pandas are considered to be in the top 5% of the nation's student rocket teams. Not waiting, our Rocket Pandas are already planning their 2020 run!
The Archdiocesan Educational Fund awarded Nazareth Academy High School a grant in the amount of $99,300 for the 2019-2020 Fiscal year. The funded program will support Nazareth’s STREAM initiative titled STREAM: 21stCentury Teaching and Learning. Matthew H. McCloskey Jr. (1893-1973), building contractor and U.S. Ambassador to Ireland (1962-64), created and funded the charitable organization in 1967 to advance Catholic education and evangelization throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
