Academics

Learning to work independently is a valuable skill, as is the art of successful teamwork. Learning expectations at Nazareth School support the development of an active and enthusiastic learner who is highly motivated with the confidence to succeed.

Curriculum

We have designed our academic and cocurricular programs to be interactive and to encourage spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social growth. Faculty, students, and families work as a team to achieve mastery of national, state, and local curriculum standards.

Under the direction of dedicated and nurturing faculty, we challenge students at Nazareth School academically as well as teach character-building and study skills that will support their lifelong learning.

The school curriculum encompasses all the learning experiences of the students including the cognitive, affective, and spiritual essentials. Under the leadership of the principal and the Diocese of the San Diego Office for Schools, these planned and directed educational building blocks ensure compatibility with the diocesan policy, our mission statement, and philosophy. We base our curriculum standards on national and state standards in unison with the diocesan course content guidelines.

The school curriculum:

  • gives witness to the message of Christ as revealed in His person, sacraments, scripture, community, doctrine, and the traditional heritage of the Catholic Church; 
  • develops within students the life-learning tools of communication, problem solving, and decision making;
  • encourages each student to develop his/her potential through responsibility and accountability to self, parents, faculty, and peers;
  • provides an informational framework that will prepare the students to live in the twenty-first century; 
  • affirms ethnic pride, appreciates cultural values, and allows diversity when applying the principles of peace and justice; and 
  • integrates parent and community talent into the school program.
