Nazareth Academy Grade School has been fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1981. The chief purpose of the accreditation process is to validate educational excellence while recognizing school improvement, thus constantly sustaining a quality education. This is accomplished by periodically conducting a comprehensive self-evaluation of the total school. Through the accreditation process, the school seeks the validation of its self-evaluation by obtaining professional judgment from impartial outsiders on the effectiveness of the total school operation.
An accredited school must meet the following rigorous Middle States Standards:
As with all accredited schools, Nazareth is student-oriented and its philosophy of education is focused on the development of the whole child with an emphasis on academic performance. As a Catholic school, Nazareth centers on genuine Catholicity.

Many thanks to our Administration, Faculty and Staff for their commitment and dedication in living, teaching and modelling the mission of Nazareth Academy Grade School.
