Embracing faith, family and education

Who We Are


A sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth

As a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, embracing faith, family and education has been the foundation of everything we do. Our girls are challenged each day to be leaders of Catholic teachings and to spread the kingdom of God's love here on earth.   

For 90 years, Nazareth Academy High School has aimed to not just educate the mind but to inspire the Catholic faith and build the character of the young women who walk our halls. 



The only private Catholic high school for girls in Philadelphia.

Nazareth Academy High School boasts a 8 to 1 student to teacher ratio.  The small class sizes allow our girls the opportunity to know their teachers and classmates.  Through academic rigor and a culture of togetherness, a sisterhood is formed amongst our students that helps create lifelong friendships.

Located in Suburban Northeast Philadelphia on the same grounds as Holy Family University,  students have the unique ability to take both high school and college credit courses without ever leaving our beautiful campus.



Inspirers for Academic Excellence

The Nazareth Academy High School Class of 2019 achieved a perfect 100 percent college acceptance rate.

At NAHS, our rigorous curriculum empowers our girls to master knowledge across a variety of disciplines.  Known for our extensive curriculum offerings, our eleven academic departments offer more than 80 courses. The diversified curriculum offerings inspire constant creativity from our students.



Women of Christian Service

Nazareth Academy High School's Service program offers students the opportunity to work with, learn from, and serve people different from us.  Our rich tradition of Christian Service is evident in the amount of hours our girls dedicate to other.  During the 2018-2019 school year, Nazareth Academy High School students performed over 15,000 of Christian Service.

Similar to the teachings of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, our girls are committed to creating  a community of love and acceptance for all they encounter. A Nazareth student understands that LOVE is best demonstrated through deeds.
