Our Story

Nativity Preparatory School of Wilmington, a catholic middle school dedicated to transforming lives, opened its doors in September 2003 to 15 excited and enthusiastic fifth and sixth grade students. Since then, Nativity continues to thrive by serving low-income boys of all faiths in grades fifth through eighth by instilling values and empowering them through rigorous academics, strong values, and high expectations.

Every day, Nativity students are challenged by the teachings of St. Francis De Sales as he asks them to, “be who you are and be that well”. Nativity students demonstrate their ability to be true to themselves while also being successful and valuable assets to their communities. Following graduation, Nativity graduates take this motto and the values gained at Nativity with them into the world, as they are productive, contended, and dynamic members of an ever-changing world. 

Today, Nativity has over 50 students enrolled at the school along with 19 graduating classes consisting of over 160 alumni.
