The English Department at Nazareth Academy works diligently to instill a love of literature in all of its students while helping to foster critical thought and sound analytical writing skills. The department is committed to providing a rigorous classroom environment that develops students’ reading, writing, and public speaking abilities to prepare them not only for college, but also for their future careers. Students are challenged on a daily basis to think outside of the box and find ways to apply literature to their own lives. The dedicated teachers in the English Department are committed to helping each student reach her highest potential and get the most out of her Nazareth Academy experience.
The Math Department works collaboratively to achieve a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum that will not only prepare our students for the SAT and ACT, but for college and the workplace. With a focus on deeper learning, we take every opportunity to relate mathematical concepts to their application in the world outside the classroom. We set high learning standards for our students and we supply the support necessary to achieve them. It is our mission to help each student reach her highest potential in Mathematics.
The Science Department strives to create critical thinkers who can apply their knowledge of science to everyday encounters. Through active engagement in the learning process, students are encouraged to use critical and creative thinking skills as applied to science. Each course is taught by a dedicated faculty member with a strong background in science. Students develop a positive attitude and increase their proficiency with laboratory skills in the field of science as they travel through the different science courses. A Nazareth Academy High School science student is respected for her God-given talents, and she is consistently encouraged to further her intellect and leadership abilities.
Students will gain critical thinking skills as they analyse ancient, foreign and domestic policies using the theories of economics, political science, geography, criminology, and sociology. The Social Studies Department brings the past to the present in order to create a better future.
