Academics

Nazareth Prep is focused on equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and mindset that will prepare them for careers of the future. We prepare a diverse range of students for multiple post-secondary education and career training options, through our unique, project-based, learning curriculum. Our program is rigorous and requires hard work.

Focused on active rather than passive learning, students also work one day a week in positions at some of Pittsburgh’s most prestigious employers. The Corporate Internship Program is coupled with a blended and personalized learning program, where students learn to identify and solve community problems, become entrepreneurs, and build character through the learning hub, our holistic advisory program.

Oral and written communications are woven into all of our classes as is digital media production and the use of Google Apps for Education. We focus on cultural relevance, offer Spanish and Mandarin language options, and infuse engineering into our science classes. With a wide array of student activities and community learning opportunities, like the Carnegie Science Center and the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild, Nazareth Prep students have a voice in choice in their learning. All students prepare and present e-portfolios of their best work and design a capstone presentation about their internship. Students can further their career exploration efforts by earning Digital Badges that will be added to their high school transcript.
