Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our Mission is to provide a Catholic, college-prep, middle school education to students from low-income families who will be the first in their families to graduate from college. In partnership with our families, we are committed to each student’s total development--academic, social, physical, spiritual, and emotional--by emphasizing serious study and personal and social responsibility. Through a comprehensive Graduate Support Program, we help our students transition to and succeed at a top regional high school and then matriculate to college or university.
Nativity Prep Academy is a private, WASC-accredited, all-scholarship middle school in the Jesuit tradition dedicated to providing a rigorous and enriching education to hardworking young men and women from low-income families who will be the first, or among the first, in their families to graduate from college. Our programs support more than 220 students in middle school, high school, and college. We believe the best hope for low-income children is a great education earned through hard work, founded on personal care, and focused on service to others.
Our Vision is to be a regional leader in the education of young men and women from impoverished families, well known for the caliber of our teachers, the rigor and creativity of our programs, and the academic and service achievements of our students. Our vision is that our students excel in high school, college, and beyond, and that they become role models and leaders in their communities.
Our Philosophy is built on the Jesuit idea of cura personalis, care for the whole person, including the academic, social, physical, spiritual, and emotional. Only with this noble, integrated, classic approach in mind can we accomplish our lofty mission and graduate young persons of character and intellect sufficient enough to ensure that they will become college graduates and--most importantly--caring, competent persons for others, role models and leaders in their families and in their communities.
