We are no longer accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year. Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be available October 1, 2019. 

Nativity Prep Academy is a private, Catholic middle school for students in grades six through eight, with a comprehensive support program to help sustain our graduates’ success through high school and college. Entry to the school typically happens for students entering 6th grade, though we also accept students in 7th or 8th grade should space be available.

If you are interested in having your child apply and would like to receive more information, please fill out the form below.

Who Can Apply?

There are two initial requirements for admission for a family to continue with the admissions process.

  1. The applicant is part of the first generation in the family that will graduate from college (i.e. parents have not graduated from a four-year accredited university in the United States).
  2. The family must qualify for free or reduced lunch based on federal income guidelines. Use the second chart on the link here.
