Dear Friends of Nazareth Academy High School,
Welcome to Nazareth Academy High School!
Now in our 89th year of offering college preparatory classes to girls, NAHS is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. Our mission to embrace faith, family and education is as strong as when the first few students arrived on our campus back in 1928. We are proud of our very rich tradition of offering a rigorous academic curriculum while developing young women of faith to be confident, articulate, dynamic, inspiring and service oriented leaders who will help build stronger families and enrich the workplace and their neighborhoods.
Our faculty are prepared to provide students with an academic program that includes Honors and Advanced Placement courses. In cooperation with Holy Family University we are able to offer our students the opportunity to participate in a dual enrollment program in which college courses are taken and college credits earned.
Students have numerous extra-curricular opportunities that are available through music and drama, athletics, clubs, and service. Students who participate in any of the extra activities offered learn and demonstrate leadership skills, teamwork, and self-confidence in a supportive and nurturing faith-based school community.
Our college preparatory schedule provides our teachers with the time to engage in in-depth learning and implement a variety of instructional practices. The schedule provides a learning environment that is engaging with opportunities for discourse, individual and team work and creative expression.
We are confident that you will find at Nazareth Academy High School that education is exciting and challenging and everything we do is wrapped in our mission of embracing faith, family and education.
