Mission Statement

Sacred Heart Nativity School for Boys and Our Lady of Grace Nativity School for Girls are urban Catholic middle schools that seek to educate young men and women to enter college preparatory high school programs in partnership with the Society of Jesus, the Diocese of San José, and the Parish of Sacred Heart. The schools are dedicated to providing a Catholic education for students of low-income families, with priority given to families of the Sacred Heart community. In the Jesuit tradition, Nativity students are encouraged to deepen their relationship with God as they become women and men for others.
