Thank you for being a part of the Nativity Prep community!


Nativity Prep is fortunate to have been guided since its founding by dedicated Trustees who serve as the guardians of our mission and our fiscal health. There are 20 independent-voting trustees who currently serve on our Board. They have ultimate accountability for the school’s Ignatian/Catholic character and its academic standards, fundraising activities, and financial operations. In addition to their expertise and generous financial support, a number of Board members serve as mentors and tutors as well.

We are also fortunate to have a number of individual advisors who serve our school community with their professional expertise and advice.
