Philosophy

The philosophy of Nativity of Our Lord Catholic School is centered on our Lord Jesus Christ. Built on the strong foundation of Catholic values, it is based on the following principles.

Spiritual

  • To grow in the knowledge of our Catholic faith

  • To accept fully God’s gift of faith

  • To share our hope of salvation with all

  • To deepen our love of God, neighbor, and self

Intellectual

  • To provide a sound and challenging education that fosters analytical thinking as well as creative expression which will prepare students for higher education as they move toward adulthood

Emotional

  • To embrace the values of patience, understanding, kindness, and tolerance and to uphold them as virtues in a diverse and constantly changing world

Physical

  • To promote a healthy body, mind, and soul which is central to who we are and how we value ourselves as an image of God, and how we interact with the world around us

Social

  • To encourage the adoption of a world view by embracing our own unique gifts and talents and accepting the diverse beliefs and values of others

With God as our guide, Nativity School strives to lead the heart, the mind, and the soul of each of its students towards goodness. As Proverbs 22 teaches, “Train a child in the way(s) he should go, and when (s)he is old, (s)he will not turn from it.”
