Our daughter has attended Nazareth Academy for 4 years and we couldn't be more pleased with the quality of education she is receiving, as well as the positive environment in which she is learning. The faculty have been attentive and caring and have communicated with us regularly about our child's progress. We could not imagine sending her anywhere else. Go Jets!

Nazareth Academy not only focuses on quality education but also builds on traditions, values, and providing service to others. The teachers and administration go above and beyond. They care for each student as if they are part of one big family. Great school. Great teachers. Great place to be.

We are a new family at Nazareth Academy and are very pleased with the school. What a fantastic facility!!! Our children are challenged by the curriculum and have many choices for athletics and extracurricular activities. The teachers and staff are friendly and professional. The principal, Sister Evelyn is outstanding! We would highly recommend Nazareth Academy.

If you do not share catholic politics (abortion is a sin, sex education is bad, women cannot lead the church or community) then this school is not for you. The class size is huge -- an astonishment since the tuition is high and comparable to big city catholic schools. The teachers absolutely rely on a parent volunteer to maintain order. Some parents are better at this than others and the fate of your kid's learning experience depends on this random variable. The school is next to the county jail -- I worried about this every day.

We have two children attending Nazareth Academy and have been very pleased with the scholastic and religious education they have received. The faculty and staff are very committed to the success of the students. The principal is very caring and devoted to the students and also very approachable and communicates well with the parents. We are very confident that Nazareth Academy is giving our children a strong spiritual and academic foundation that they will need to succeed in the future. Jets for Jesus!

Our daughter attends Nazareth Academy and is in her last year of Jr. High. She has met great success academically, for which we atribute to Nazareth Academy teachers raising the bar and exceeding academic standards in their curriculum. Most importantly, we have watched our daughter grow spiritually, and become a steward of service to others. Nazareth Academy has prepared our daughter for her future. Her love of learning is exceptional, and her educational foundation is rock solid. Our daughter loves Nazareth Academy, and will be a life long 'Jet for Jesus.'

My children have attended Nazareth Academy and its preschool for seven years. We have had a wonderful experience. We have seen our children grow academically and spiritually. The teachers and administration have both shown a personal interest in our children. Although academics are very important and the students excel (Last year students placed at the state level in academic competitions, and every year multiple students qualify to take the SAT through Duke University.), the real strength of the school is in how they live out their mission statement: To teach, to build, to serve in the spirit of Christ. We make financial sacrifices for our children to attend, but feel as though it is money well spent to prepare them in all ways for the future. We're proud to be Jets for Jesus.

Great education with an emphasis on kindness and Christian values. I'm pleased to be part of the NA family. The money is a great investment for our children

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
