The Jesuit order of Catholic priests and brothers has embraced the belief that true education should develop not only the mind but also moral and spiritual character of each student. Nativity Jesuit aims at both academic excellence as well as the growth of the whole student so they are prepared for high school, college and leadership in the community.
That is why we take the Jesuit educational principle, Care for the Whole Person (cura personalis), very seriously at Nativity Jesuit.
