There are two initial requirements for admission for a family to continue with the admissions process.

  1. The applicant is part of the first generation in the family that will graduate from college (i.e. parents have not graduated from a four-year accredited university in the United States).
  2. Nativity Prep serves students from families who qualify as low income according to San Diego County’s assessment of the Area Median Income (60 %) and its corresponding definition of low income (60% of the AMI).
The Priority Deadline for admission is December 15, 2021.  Applications that meet this deadline will be given priority consideration in the application process.

All applications for the 2022 – 2023 school year are due by January 31, 2022 .
