At Nazareth, girls have many opportunities to discover themselves as leaders. Through our many clubs, activities, and athletic teams our girls are empowered to make decisions, plan events, and work collaboratively with their teachers and fellow classmates in an effort to advance the mission of Nazareth.
Student Leadership Organizations
The leadership clubs are a snapshot of the many clubs and activities that Nazareth Academy High School has to offer. These officers of these clubs are recognized as student leaders throughout our school community. The moderators and student leaders of these clubs promote student learning, enhance personal growth, and help students realize their full potential as part of their preparation for leading a satisfying and productive life. At Nazareth Academy High School our girls are more than just students.
The function of the Student Council is to represent student views to the faculty and administration and vice-versa. To accomplish this, members concern themselves with the student concerns, help to develop and maintain school spirit by providing activities and encouraging participation in them, and assist in maintaining discipline throughout the school. Student Council members and officers are elected from the senior, junior and sophomore classes. Homeroom presidents may be called in as ex-officio members of Council. Elected late in the first semester, 12 freshmen become associates and serve as councilors for the second semester.
They are the “face” of Nazareth and the school representation inside and outside of the campus. Their sense of loyalty, responsibility and duty, along with spiritedness and creativity adds to our school atmosphere and makes Nazareth Academy High School a welcoming home for all.

Hi everyone! My name is Katrina Juntereal, and I am the Student Council President of Nazareth Academy High School for the 2019-2020 school year. Before coming to Nazareth, I attended St. Christopher School in Philadelphia, PA. Fun fact: I was the Student Council President there as well! When I am not walking the halls, you can either catch me tutoring in the Math Center, making an announcement on Naz News, or just giving a hug to every person I see. Nazareth has provided me with countless opportunities to not only strengthen my talents but to discover new ones as well. At Nazareth, I have truly blossomed into the young lady I am today. Not only that, but I can say with 110% confidence that I am a better person because I went to school here. I am beyond grateful to be given the honor to serve on our school’s Leadership Team and cannot wait to see the wonderful things we can accomplish together.
Hey there everyone! Initially I was nervous about how my high school years would go, but nevertheless excited to begin the journey. It was during our first mass as a school community when we all joined hands in prayer that I knew I had made the right decision in choosing Naz. I felt I would have deep and meaningful connections with the faculty and students, and I certainly have not been disappointed. Nazareth has become my home. It has been the perfect environment for me to grow into the well-educated person I am today while also learning who I am and who I would like to become. I am provided with the opportunities to travel abroad with my Italian class, join countless clubs and activities, build my leadership and public speaking skills as captain of cross country, track, and forensics club, and cultivate friendships on and off my teams that will last a lifetime. Nazareth empowers its students to achieve anything and everything we aspire to accomplish. I am comforted and confident in knowing that the most amazing school community will support me in all my endeavors.
Hi everyone, my name is Katie McGinn. I the Secretary of the Student Body here at Nazareth Academy High School for the 2019-2020 school year. I attended Saint Andrew School in Newtown, PA. I chose Nazareth because I loved the sisterhood bond that I felt every time I walked through the door. I am heavily involved in sports including soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. I look forward to serving my school and leading my peers with fellow Leadership Team members. I always preach about the acceptance of others, and with my Nazareth sisters, we use prayer and education to live this out. Nazareth has helped me in so many ways, and I am determined to do the same for the rest of my sisters. I am so excited to be a part of such a wonderful team, and I look forward to making a change in the most positive way possible.
Hi everyone! My name is Emily Loughery and I am the treasurer for the 2019-2020 school year. I come from the Saint Christopher’s Parish in Somerton, and I am blessed to have grown up right down the street from our beloved president Katrina! I am a Music Major and Minor, and I participate in music ensembles such as Chorus, Chorale, and Pandemonium, our A Cappella group. Our chorale has had amazing opportunities where I was able to perform in Carnegie Hall this past March and will be traveling to Italy next winter. I am a proud member of our Tri-M Music Honor Society, and I participate in our annual fall play every year where I have been in both the ensemble and a lead role in Beauty and the Beast in 2017. I have been in All Catholic Chorus since Sophomore year, and have been fortunate enough to further my musical experiences with other mentors and teachers from schools throughout the Archdiocese. I love Nazareth so much, and i wouldn’t have been able to make such an amazing decision without my sister Jessica, who is a 2017 graduate. I am very excited to work with such wonderful ladies on Leadership Team, and I can't wait to help make Nazareth a better school than it already is.
Hey everyone! My name is Cayla Chipperfield and I am the Corresponding Secretary on the 2019-2020 Leadership Team. Before Nazareth, I attended St. Ephrem School in Bensalem, PA. I chose to come to Nazareth because I felt so welcomed here and it truly felt like home so I am beyond excited to be a part of this team. If you don’t see me in the hallways, you will probably see me either on the soccer field, running track or sleeping. I am extremely excited to see what this Leadership team can accomplish in our final year here at Nazareth Academy!
Since 1950, Nazareth Academy High School has been a chartered member of the National Honor Society. As a chartered affiliate of the organization, Nazareth’s Lumen Christi Chapter operates strictly according to guidelines established by the national constitutions. The object of the National Honor Society, on both the national and local levels, is to encourage students to work for high standards of character, service, leadership, and scholarship.
Admission to the National Honor Society should not be looked upon as a reward for what a given student has done. Rather, it should be looked upon as acknowledgment of the fact that the student subscribes to National Honor Society values and acts accordingly. Thus, after induction, each National Honor Society member continues to practice the four qualities which formed the basis for her election. Failure to maintain National Honor Society standards constitute grounds for dismissal from the society.
Nazareth Academy High School’s Community Service Corp (CSC) provides students with the opportunity to live out the words expressed by His Holiness, John Paul II, “Enjoy the privilege of your youth: the right to be dynamic, creative and spontaneous, the right to be full of hope and joy, and above all, the chance to give of yourself to others in generous joyful service.”
For members of the Community Service Corp, service is a year round experience that includes:
- Collecting school supplies for area grade schools
- Gathering winter clothing and food for local shelters
- Serving holiday meals to older adults at senior centers
- Mentoring children in their schools and communities
Other major service projects include Operation Santa Claus, the Thanksgiving Food Drive, and the Bread Basketball program which raises over eight tons of canned vegetables, beverages, cereals, baby supplies, toiletries, and more for those in need.
