Dear Friends,

            I would like to welcome you the Nativity Preparatory School of Boston. You are invited to learn more about this grace-filled place where boys thrive and prepare to grow into young men of competence, conscience and compassion.

            As a tuition-free Jesuit middle school, Nativity Prep provides boys from all faith traditions with an education tailored to meet the needs of students from low-income families and inner-city neighborhoods. Our program of studies and enrichment for grades 4 through 8 empowers our students with the knowledge, skills and spirit that enable them to succeed. This foundation is coupled with our Graduate Support Program that accompanies our alumni in their journey to high school, college and beyond.

            At Nativity Prep, our Jesuit education is rooted in connecting the experiences of our everyday lives to an understanding of God’s presence in the world. Animated by Ignatian Spirituality, our academic program of history, literature, physical science, mathematics, music and art is enhanced by a practice of reflection and prayer. Through this reflection, students become aware of the movements of the Spirit in their lives and see that they can truly find God in all things. The Nativity Prep program extends beyond academics to fully incorporate the Ignatian ideal of “care for the individual”. Nativity students participate in sports, activities and community service which build the foundation for a personal sense of well-being, and an understanding of their responsibility for those around them. Throughout the extended school day, the boys of Nativity Prep learn together, play together and share meals as companions, developing a community of brothers who form friendships that last a lifetime.

            Nativity Prep is filled with optimism, resilience and enthusiasm. The community of students, families, teachers, staff and benefactors welcomes you to be a part of our mission. If you are seeking admission for a boy entering grades 4 through 6, please go to our admissions page for application and visiting information. If you would like to become more involved with Nativity as a volunteer or donor, I invite you to visit our school to see how you can help make a difference in the lives of our students.


            Mr. Brian Maher
