ABC – A Better Chance
Nativity Prep works in partnership with A Better Chance, a program that identifies, places, and supports minority students in outstanding college preparatory schools. A Better Chance selects middle school students who consistently perform at or above grade level in Math and English, have an overall average of a B+ or higher, and are ranked in the top 10 percent of the class. The program is optional and rigorous, but extremely valuable for our students.
In the spring, our 7th grade students and their families meet with A Better Chance representatives and begin the application process. Once parents and students are accepted into the program, they are coached by the ABC program for tests, interviews, and other steps necessary for a high school acceptance. Nativity sees the ABC program as a helpful way to support students and their families, as they transition to high school.
