Nazareth Academy High School library is a member of the American Library Association (ALA) and has much to offer students. The library houses over 10 thousand volumes. Internet access with multimedia references is available at the 10 student computers.  Also available at the computers is the Concourse OPAC, the electronic version of the card catalog, through which the students can view library resources available to them.  Some of these resources include a large selection of encyclopedias, a wide range of books, DVDs, and periodicals.

NAHS students also have full access to the Holy Family University Library.  Students need to present their NAHS student ID to personnel at HFU for a barcode application in order to check out materials.  They should ring the bell at HFU's library and say that they are from Nazareth.

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.
