 Nativity Prep: the First 25 Years


The only tuition-free school for boys in Boston, Nativity Prep is a Jesuit middle school serving boys from low-income families in the city. Through a rigorous program of study and comprehensive support, we prepare urban boys in grades 4 through 8 for success in high school and college. A Nativity education inspires boys to become "men for others" who go on to serve their communities with a spirit of gratitude and generosity. 

Nativity students go on to attend some of the of the finest high schools in the Boston area, including:

  • Boston College High School
  • Milton Academy
  • Saint Sebastian's
  • Saint Joseph's Preparatory
  • Catholic Memorial
  • Cristo Rey
  • City on a Hill
