International Students

Nazareth Academy High School fields requests weekly from international students wishing to come to the United States and study at college preparatory schools, such as ours. Upon more than a year of careful consideration of research, Nazareth partnered with EduLink in early 2014. EduLink specializes in working with prospective international students as they identify potential schools; navigate the Nazareth Academy admissions process; and ultimately transition students from abroad into the United States with appropriate documents, housing, training, supervision, and educational placement. EduLink works hand-in-hand every step of the way with our Sister Teresa Mary Lukaszewski who serves as Nazareth Academy’s International Student Liaison. Sister Teresa Mary travelled to China during March 2014 with representatives of EduLink to learn more about the process and meet prospective students and families.

Prospective students engage in the same rigorous admissions process as all Nazareth applicants, including interviews conducted via Skype. Applicants must also meet all of the guidelines of the Department of Homeland Security and Student Exchange and Visitor Program.

About Naz

"Embracing Faith, Family, and Education"


"Naz's where you belong."  How will you finish the sentence, "Naz because..."?


Our student to faculty ratio of 9:1 allows our teachers to interact with students 1-on-1, providing constant help and support.

Campus Life

Our activities provide a diverse set of opportunities for spiritual, social, physical, and intellectual growth for the students.


Learning about commitment, dedication, hard work, discipline, and teamwork not only helps on the field, but in the classroom as well.

Fine Arts

The Fine Arts at Naz allow students to release their creativity, whether it be through song and dance or a piece of fine art.

Giving to Naz

We are called to give to "Nazareth" - not the building, but to “Nazareth” the home...our home.
