Nazareth School San Diego Mission and Philospy

Nazareth School Mission Statement

It is the mission of Nazareth School to teach and guide students from various backgrounds in their spiritual, academic, physical, and social development. As a Catholic institution, Nazareth School community members integrate the charism and core values of the Sisters of Nazareth into the educational experience. It is the school’s aim to nurture mind, body and spirit in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust in God and to contribute to the larger community through service, worship and spreading the Gospel message.

Nazareth School Philosophy

The Nazareth School faculty and staff work in partnership with parents, the primary educators of their children, to provide a quality Catholic education.  God is the center of Nazareth School, and each child is a member of His family, created in His image.  Students develop a strong relationship with God and grow in the rich traditions of the Catholic faith, through prayer, sacramental celebration and service to others. Gospel values are practiced daily. Nazareth School staff, students, parents, and religious are committed to building the bonds of community among themselves and the local/global society. Through a challenging academic curriculum relevant to the needs and abilities of the students, the children are prepared for higher education and responsible citizenship with moral integrity in an ever-changing world.

Nazareth School Preschool Philosophy

Nazareth Catholic Preschool’s staff provides a safe, loving and nurturing environment for our students.  Enriching our Catholic faith with simple and concrete experiences is an important part of our program.  Through our faith-based curriculum, our students participate in daily prayer and community stewardship.  Our students have the opportunity to learn and grow during both teacher managed/structured activities and organized play activities as well.  Teachers stimulate academic growth by focusing on the whole child; spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and culturally.  The potential and creativity of all children are vital as they continue their journey as life-long learners.  At Nazareth Catholic Preschool we consider it a privilege to partner with parents in fostering each child’s success as they become Disciples of Christ within the Church Family and community.
