The Purpose of Nativity Prep Is to Develop Our Students and Their Families Ability to Live a Life of Opportunity and Choice.
Nativity Prep Academy is a private-independent, tuition-free Catholic school for young men and women who represent the first generation in their families to graduate from college.
Give the Gift of a College-prep Education
We rely on the generosity of our benefactors to support 100% of our annual operating costs and reserve funds. Each gift, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated. It transforms the lives of Nativity Prep students and families.
The mission of Nativity Prep is to provide a uniquely effective, integrated program of academic preparation, graduate support, and mutual long-term commitment that achieves nationally recognized excellence in terms of college graduation rates for our students.
Our programs support more than 230 students in San Diego over the course of 11 years, from middle school through high school through college. Our vision is that our students excel in high school, college, and beyond and that they become role models and leaders in their communities.
Student Success Stories
“I was first gen, not just of my siblings, but of all of my cousins to graduate.” It was a wonderful day for the family in Merced and her Nativity Prep family in San Diego. Lesly is one of three in her 2011 class to earn her college degree in four years.
