We are pleased to announce Eric G. Ruoss, M.Div. Ed.D., to become the next president of Nativity Preparatory School, effective July 1, 2017.

Eric is currently serving as the Interim Headmaster of Kew-Forest School, a K-12 institution in the borough of Queens in New York City. However, many members of our community will recognize Eric as the long-time headmaster of The Tatnall School, where he served for nearly two decades as the school’s leader. Eric brings a wealth of education and experience to Nativity, not solely as an educator but also as a counselor. His unique perspective and knowledge of the local educational landscapes were strong elements of his candidacy. Ultimately, it was his passion for Nativity’s mission that made him the unanimous choice of the Board of Trustees.

Nativity Prep is STILL enrolling for the 2017-2018 school year but we only have a few spots left!
