Nazareth Academy Grade School is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that is tuition-driven, meaning that the school operates mainly on tuition income. We strive to keep the tuition affordable and market appropriate but we must offer competitive salaries and benefits, which will allow us to hire and retain the very best teachers and administrators; we must have first class programs and facilities for academics, sports and fine arts; and we must also stay on the cutting edge of technology.

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (E.I.T.C.) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit programs (O.S.T.C.) are funded through the generosity of businesses and individuals contributing under the guidelines provided by PA legislation. Once their donation is made, a donor company receives a 75%, 90% or 100% credit against PA depending on the type and length of their participation.
