A world of opportunity awaits students at Nazareth Academy High School. From the moment they enter Nazareth through graduation, our dedicated Counseling Department works with each student on transitions, relationships, academics, time management and the extensive college search and application process. Through a multi-faceted program, our counselors offer stability and guidance to our students during the sometimes challenging years of high school.

Our Counseling Planner is our year-by-year plan of all guidance activities, so that students and parents can be informed and remain an integral part of the guidance program here at Nazareth. In addition, students and parents are encouraged to utilize Naviance™. Nazareth has partnered with Naviance™ to assist with college and career planning. College Meet & Greets, Testing Material and Scholarship Information can be accessed through our Naviance™ account.

Besides working one-on-one with students, counselors meet with parents for consultations and host informative sessions for families regarding funding a college education, the college planning and application process, and filling out financial aid forms.

 Young Women's Leadership Retreat at Bryn Mawr College

  • From July 26-29, 2018
  • Hosted by the Network of Enlightened Women (NeW), this extraordinary opportunity prepares young women to be effective leaders in the cultural and political climate in college. The retreat offers two tracks: one for rising college freshmen (high school seniors) and one for current college students

The Network of enlightened Women (NeW) is the nation’s premier organization for conservative university women. In 2004, NeW started as a book club at the University of Virginia. In the years since 2004, students have started chapters on more than 30 campuses nationwide and young professional chapters have been started in Washington, DC and New York City. NeW has chapters across 18 different states at some of the nation’s finest universities: American University, Cornell University, Florida State University, Harvard University, University of North Carolina, and University of Virginia, just to name a few. You can find out more about NeW here.

NeW educates young women on conservative values, cultivates a community in which to discuss and strengthen these values, and emboldens young women to speak out on campus and in their communities. NeW provides an alternative to feminism through campus chapters, professional development events, and a contest honoring gentlemen called The Gentlemen Showcase. In addition, NeW serves as a voice for conservative women in national conversations.

Acceptance to the Leadership Retreat includes a full scholarship to attend, which covers admissions, lodging, and board. Transportation to Bryn Mawr College must be provided by the student. A limited amount of travel scholarships are also available. A video from the 2016 Leadership Retreat can be viewed here.

 We have several speakers already confirmed: a Pennsylvania State Representative, the former press secretary for Nancy Reagan, journalists featured in several national news outlets, and more. Any interested applicants can apply here.

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.
