Attend one of our 8th Grade Shadow Days
We invite your daughter to spend a day as a Panda! Shadow Days offer your daughter an opportunity to see a full schedule of classes, have lunch in our Student Dining Room, and get to know our students and faculty. The school day begins at 7:40 AM and concludes at 2:10 PM. Your daughter can shadow a current Nazareth student whom she knows, or we will pair her with a current freshman based on similar academic and extracurricular interests.
We offer a variety of shadow days from the end of September through the beginning of December. Click here to register your daughter for a shadow day!

There is a $50 non-refundable application fee that is due at the time of application submission. The application fee must be received in order for an application to be reviewed.

After completing the online application, each applicant for the Class of 2028 should submit the following documents:
To request copies of your academic records, you must complete the Transcript Release Form and submit it to your current school. The school will then forward copies of your transcript, attendance records, disciplinary records, and standardized test scores to NAHS. The transcript must include your daughter's final grades from 6th and 7th grades along with her standardized testing results from 6th and 7th grades (if applicable).
In order to obtain a letter of recommendation, Class of 2028 applicants should forward the Teacher Recommendation Form to their Principal, guidance counselor, or 6th, 7th, or 8th grade teacher. The evaluator will then complete the recommendation and mail it directly to Nazareth. NAHS only requires and recommends ONE teacher recommendation.

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a critical tool in the admissions process as we consider candidates for the Class of 2028. Students can choose to take our Entrance & Scholarship Exam on October 21st or November 4th. Students who are unable to sit for Nazareth's Entrance Exam may choose to take it at another private or Archdiocesan high school in the area and send their scores to Nazareth in order to be considered for admission. Please note, only students who take Nazareth's Entrance Exam are eligible for academic scholarship consideration.
Please note: Submitting an Application for Admission does NOT automatically register your daughter for our 8th Grade Entrance & Scholarship Exam.
Qualifying applicants will receive a notification from the Admissions Office inviting them to schedule an interview. Each qualified applicant and their parent/guardian will have the opportunity to meet and interview with a member of the admissions staff or school administration. Please note: applicants must have a completed admissions file before an interview can be scheduled. A complete file includes the applicant’s Application for Admission, transcript from her current school (including 6th and 7th grade final grades and standardized testing results), and one teacher recommendation.
Nazareth Academy High School fields requests from international students wishing to come to the United States and study at college preparatory schools, such as ours. Prospective students engage in the same rigorous admissions process as all Nazareth applicants, including interviews conducted via Zoom. An applicant's acceptance to Nazareth is contingent upon meeting academic requirements and living with a CSIET approved agency or blood relative (as verified by affidavit). Applicants must also meet all of the guidelines of the Department of Homeland Security and Student Exchange and Visitor Program.
