Every member of the student body, staff and faculty participates in service projects throughout the community, amassing of 10,000 hours of service to others.
We value creative participation in the life of the school, thereby encouraging all to develop their unique abilities. 93% of Nazareth students participate in co-curricular activities including 23 sports and 25 clubs. Whether on the field, on stage or in civic discourse, Nazareth students represent the school with pride.
We realize the value of self and others. We integrate learning with Christian values and faith and work to unite people with God and one another. Through prayer, retreat, daily lessons and tradition, Nazareth students live the Campus Ministry ideal, "Respecting each other and all God's creation…that all may be one."
