Although Nazareth is an excellent school which my daughter recently graduated from, I have to question what I paid extra for. I have a son who currently attends Ryan and a younger daughter enrolled to begin Huberts in September. Both schools offer the same as Nazareth. My daughter was well prepared for college and got accepted to each one that she applied to, but I have a feeling that the same will hold true for my younger son and daughter who attend Archdiocesan schools for more than half the price. If you have the extra money I guess it is no big deal, but we could have saved a great deal of money if we had done our homework and knew this before we chose Nazareth without looking into other schools.

As a graduate of Nazareth, I am most disappointed with this school. After transferring my daughter from an archdiocesan high school where she had received an academic scholarship, my daughter has never been so poorly received. I am grateful for the few teachers that have had the courage to support and encourage my daughter. The nepotism and favoritism are beyond belief and the rules only apply for certain people. If you dare to question, everything is just "your perception" and your child will pay the price. You will learn that an A at an archdiocesan high school is a "B' at Nazareth. Character formation? Your daughter will get a lesson in clique formation. However, I am most disturbed by the blatant disregard and disrespect toward the Catholic values that we strived to instill in our daughter. How is "White Houses" played at the Father/Daughter dance like it's the school song? Nazareth needs to remember that their first mission is to send strong Catholic women into the world as lights.

Our daughter will graduate this year and it will be bittersweet to see her move on and leave Nazareth. We have watched her become a confident and caring young lady. The teachers are the best here. They encourage each girl to reach her full potential and they care so much! The past four years have been a wonderful experience.

It is everything you would want in a school for our daughters. It is family oriented, supportive, motivating, inspiring, and encouraging to both our girls and their families. We are new to the school, but already feel so welcomed. The academics and the faculty are phenomenal. They are always available and all want the girls to excel in not only their subjects, but being successful women in life.

Nazareth is a true extension of how we feel about life in our home. Everyone who comes into contact with our daughter on a daily basis truly cares about her. She is nurtured while being challenged each day. She feels comfortable safe and cared for while going throuogh her school day. Her teachers have the girls' best interest at heart and it is obvious each and every day. They are preparing these gilrs for the future and want them all to be the best they can be. all aspects of these girls are important to them. They cultivate the arts, music, athletics, along with the rigorous academic schedule. Our whole family loves Nazareth and we are very proud that our daughter is a part of the Nazareth student body.

Nazareth H.S. is the only all-female private Catholic high school in Philadelphia. It provides a quality education for our girls in a friendly, family atmosphere. The tuition is competitive for the services provided. The curriculum is challenging, and the music program is top rate. The school is easily accessible by public transportation, and it is part of a beautiful property adjacent to Holy Family College. Small classes provide an opportunity for more interaction in the classroom and individual attention. The students help each other by tutoring and volunteering their time. There are many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities and to perform service in the community. Parents can keep up with their daughters' academic progress by accessing their assignments and grades through the Internet. Teachers are available and willing to help out with any problems. The school helps the girls with their intellectual, social, and spiritual development. Our girls are Panda Proud!

Attending Nazareth Academy was a great experience for me that undoubtedly helped to shape the woman that I am today. By having been immersed in an atmosphere with such a passion for knowledge and intellect, I was able to gain a similar zest for and appreciation for learning. What I love most about Nazareth is the faculty and the school's ability to always bring in caring and enthusiastic educators. Today, as a university student I remember my experiences at Nazareth with fondness and appreciation. The teachers there taught me to love learning for the sake of learning, and I hope that I can carry that love with me in the future through all my academic endeavors.

I am a former student class of 2003 and I would highly recommend Nazareth Academy to any students and parents looking for the right school. Nazareth Academy goes above and beyond to prepare you for the demands of college as well as the demands of the real world, but it also teaches you to delve deep into yourself and find the person you are meant to be. The constant support and compassion towards all faculty and staff made graduation day a bitter sweet memory. Your daughter will not have to worry about impressing boys but will make friendships that will last through adulthood. My younger sister and myself were second generation graduates of NA and my daughter will follow in her mothers foot steps. I fought my mom tooth and nail about going to Nazareth, but thank her every day for knowing what was best for me! Go Pandas!

My daughter has just completed her sophomore year at Nazareth. While she is probably in the lowest third academically, words cannot express how the discipline, nurturing and support has helped her develop in to a promising young woman. The Sisters and faculty are totally dedicated to the girls and deliver a good balance of academic, artistic and sports challenges, with lots of fun added in. They take the time to get to know your daughter, encourage her strengths, challenge her weaknesses, and provide stability to counter the sometimes unstable atmosphere at home. Your daughter will have a love/hate relationship with Nazareth - hating the challenge, but loving the encouragement and support - but each senior class has shown us that love will win in the end. There are ample opportunities for parental involvement and access to faculty. I highly recommend Nazareth and encourage you to consider our school for your daughter.

I am a graduate of Nazareth. All of my friends went on to different high schools. I have to say that I am so grateful I chose to go here. The level of education here is phenomenal. There is so much personal interaction between student/teacher. The staff is so supportive both on an educational level, and a personal one. I didn't go on to college until 6 years after graduation, yet I hardly forgot a thing, and was actually able to skip certain college courses thanks to my knowledge. The education taught at Nazareth lasts a lifetime due to their methods of teaching. There are so many after school activities to get involved with, also. If I could go back to high school, I'd go back to Nazareth every time, again and again! Don't let your daughter miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.

When we were ready to send our daughter to high school, we wanted a school that provided an excellent education. We looked at the courses that were offered at numerous other catholic high schools in our area, but no other school offered the selection of courses that Nazareth academy did. The College Prep classes are another story .The courses are strong and the school has very committed teachers who get the girls excited about learning.The school has been around for 75 years and the community is very involved. We believe that we made the right choice in selecting Nazareth Academy for our daughter's high school education. If she decides to go on to college, we are very sure that she will have met all the requirements necessary to advance to the next level of school.
