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.
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.
We are grateful for the support of all scholarship organizations, especially Nazareth Family Foundation.
