The mission of Nativity School is to challenge students to realize their potential by providing a quality Catholic education for youngsters regardless of their family's economic level and by fostering students' appreciation of continued education.

   Statement of School Philosophy

Nativity Catholic School is an integral part of the mission of Nativity Parish and stands as a beacon of hope to the Vermont community. Through facilitation of learning in a peaceful, Catholic community environment, educators at Nativity School strive to establish conditions that foster the religious, academic, aesthetic, social, and physical growth of students. By example, support, and action, the Nativity staff encourages students to appreciate the value of education and life-long learning. Students are given tools to fulfill their potential as responsible, participating members of family, of the Church, and of society. By learning Catholic teachings and practices, students grow in understanding the importance of being faithful to commitments and of service to others.  The Nativity staff affirms the interrelationship of the school, home, and Church, recognizing that parents are the primary educators of the children served.
