that is fantastic. i am very proud of these 3 grads for sharing their stories with the NPA students. they probably don't know how inspirational they can be for the next batch of college students but they are!

Who are the other two young graduates, far left and middle? 🌞

Our graduates going into the 10th, 11th and 12th grades who earned a 3.0 GPA had the opportunity to visit and tour colleges with our Graduate Support Program staff this summer.

College tours included: Chapman University, CSU Channel Islands, UC Riverside and Cal Poly Pomona.

Shout out your support for our college bound students!

Nativity Prep would like to thank the Rotary Club of Del Mar and the Cathedral Catholic Rotaract Club (including NPA Alumna Denise) for spending a day painting the Nativity Prep campus on April 27th. A quote from Sherry Anderson, “Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.” Truer words were never spoken.

These Rotarians painted the front entryway of the school, the front office, the entire hallway, and our science room. The reaction from the students and teachers on the Monday following the event was also priceless.

Nativity Prep is home for our students for nine hours a day, 11 months a year, and thanks to these wonderful people, Nativity Prep is a bit more vibrant than before. Thank You!
