A Welcome from the President
Welcome to Nazareth Academy High School! It is my distinct honor and privilege to serve as the first president of Nazareth Academy High School. During the 2017-2018 school year, Nazareth implemented the President Principal Model. Over the last 6 school years, we have strengthened the financial position of the school by making intentional, strategic and prudent decisions. We have enhanced our academic, student life and student services programs. In those decisions, we are mission-focused and student-centered. Nazareth needed sustainable growth with an infrastructure that integrates best practices, strong fiscal management, aligned functions, consolidated roles and responsibilities in the areas of Academics, Counseling, Student Life, Catholic Identity, Advancement, Alumnae Relations, and Marketing
Consistent with our mission we maintain an unceasing commitment to educating the mind, body, and spirit, along with an unparalleled dedication to academic excellence. True to its tradition, the Nazareth experience transforms girls into young women prepared to be life-long learners and leaders in a global society.
We challenge our young women to attain their full potential academically, spiritually, and personally. We are steadfast in this mission and in our Catholic identity to ensure that the Nazareth experience includes opportunities for community service along with leadership, athletics, and extra-curricular activities. Your daughters will find that at Nazareth, our academics, athletics, activities, and the arts come alive.
At the end of the day, Nazareth students learn to believe in the power of faith; to believe in the power of possibility; to believe in themselves. In a world that cries out for leadership, we greet our incoming freshmen as girls, and in four short years, they are transformed into tomorrow's leaders. They are leaders as defined by their professional success, yes, but more importantly, leaders in virtue, morality, and social justice.
Preaching the Gospel to others not with our words (which can often be misunderstood) but through every action and every interaction we have with everyone every day, is our north star, and that is what makes Nazareth Academy extraordinary. That is what makes Nazareth Academy the right choice.
As you visit our website and experience our many admissions events, I invite you to talk to our students and parents, visit our school community, and experience for yourself why Nazareth Academy is a school worthy of your daughters. They are the treasures of your lives, and the Nazareth community will embrace them and prepare them well. In fact, they will leave us changed for the better after having lived the Nazareth experience for four years.
Mrs. Denise LePera
