What Makes Us Special?
Everyday our students begin their morning by reciting the prayer for generosity. Regardless of religious background, practice, or belief each and every student that enrolls in Nativity is instilled with the values outlined in this prayer. They are identified as the 5 Jesuit Characteristics and include being:
open to growth
committed to social justice
Nativity sets a high bar for our students, faculty and staff. We preach love and acceptance, hard work, determination, endurance, perseverance, and most importantly that each and every person is special and deserves to be given opportunity, a safe environment in which to learn and grown, and the tools to succeed.
