The admissions process sneaks up quickly during the first few months of eighth grade, so we want to make sure you are prepared for what you need to have together. Mark your calendars with the following events and deadlines to make sure you don't miss anything!

8th Grade Shadow Days

We welcome interested 8th grade students to participate in our Shadow Program, which allows students to experience a typical day at Naz. Students who participate in the Shadow Program are able to meet current faculty and students, observe classes, eat lunch in our student dining room, and attend various assemblies. We offer 2 to 3 Shadow Days per week (based on our school schedule) from the end of September into the spring for 8th grade girls. Parents must schedule a Shadow Day with the Admissions Office at least one week in advance of the date that their daughter wishes to shadow. Participation in our Shadow Program is strongly encouraged. Below is a list of our available Shadow Days.

About Naz

"Embracing Faith, Family, and Education"


"Naz because...it'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.
