In September of 2003, Nativity Preparatory School of Wilmington opened its doors to 15 excited and enthusiastic young fifth and sixth graders. Since that opening date, Nativity Prep now counts 10 graduating classes with a grand total of 77 alumni. In June 2010, Nativity’s first graduates finished their senior year of high school and entered college. In 2015-2016 year, Nativity has 52 students enrolled at the school.
This Catholic middle school serves low-income boys of all faiths in grades five through eight. Nativity Prep is about transforming lives. Within the structures of an extended day, extended week, high expectations, value formation, sophisticated summer programs, and rigorous academic standards, Nativity students demonstrate they can be fulfilled, successful, and vital participants in changing the community that previously frustrated them. Nativity students are asked to “be who you are and be that well.” In aspiring to this motto Nativity graduates are productive, contented and dynamic members of society.
