    Our 2 children go there even though we live in an excellent Public school district outside of Philadelphia. People ask me, why? I say because we are family there! The small school community gives our children the love and nurturing they need in an amazing learning environment. The teachers and staff are very supportive with a common goal to help all the students achieve academic goals. In addition to academics, kids learn morality, how to be a good friend and how important it is to give back to your community. We are so happy we chose NAGS!

    We are so happy we chose to send our son to NAGS, he is thriving, confident and learning so much including respect, kindness and faith. We love the small, family like community and all the school has to offer to prepare our son for his future. The teachers and all the administrators are the best who do everything possible to give the kids not only an exceptional education but also a lot of fun. We we can’t wait for our other son to join next school year!
    As an alumni parent, I believe Nazareth played a huge role in preparing my children for high school. The strong academic foundation, faith based learning environment, service projects and dedicated teachers gave them the tools to succeed!
