Nativity Mission –  Nativity Preparatory School New Bedford graduates young men who are academically prepared for further education, inspired to lead their lives with humility, and dedicated to serving others.

Nativity History – Nativity Preparatory School is an independent, tuition-free school for young men in grades 5-8 from the New Bedford area who qualify for enrollment through the admissions process.  Founded in the Catholic tradition by Jesuit lay people, Nativity Prep seeks to foster the intellectual, spiritual, moral, social, and athletic growth of its students, and to nurture in a small school setting the full potential of their whole character.  

All members of the Nativity community strive to help boys of promise become lifelong learners who will contribute productively to the world they inherit – as the Jesuits say, “Men for Others.”  The School’s faculty and staff work closely with students’ families and other volunteers, building ties between school and community and developing the kinds of personal and institutional supports that will ensure the continuing success of Nativity students in high school, college, the workforce, and life.
