Philosophy and Mission

Our Philosophy at Nativity Catholic School

We strive to build community in our school, families, parish, and neighborhood. We exist as an extension of the family and offer our students a quality education stressing the gospel message as a way of life. We value the family and recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children. We value the dignity of each individual, as a child of God.

Our Mission

Nativity School is committed to the teachings, values, and beliefs of the Catholic Church, while engaging and nurturing each student within a diverse learning community.


Nativity School is accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA). WCEA accredits Catholic elementary and secondary schools in nine western states (26 (arch) dioceses) and the US Territory of Guam. WCEA co-accredits and is in partnership with three Regional agencies (WASC, NAAS, NCA) and two private agencies (CAIS and HAIS). WCEA began in 1957 in San Francisco and has a long and successful history of assisting school improvement through the accreditation process.
