About Our School
Nativity Prep is a member of the NativityMiguel Coalition, which includes 49 member schools located in 16 states, the District of Columbia, and two Canadian Provinces. NativityMiguel schools educate nearly 3,500 students and support over 6,000 graduates.

In middle school, we have longer school days starting at 8 AM and finishing at 5 PM. We have on average 200 school days that include summer support for our students.
