Profile of a Graduate

Profile of a Graduate

The Profile of a Graduate is a description of knowledge, skills and personal aptitudes which Nazareth Academy Grade School expects its graduates will develop through their study. Our objective in developing the plan is to ensure our students’ success in their continuing education, life, work and citizenship. 

Through personal reflection and observations by faculty, the Graduate Profile can be embraced and utilized as a lever of transformative change and sense of purpose.

As our students graduate, we celebrate their successes and envision the infinite possibilities they will encounter in their future. 

The Graduate Profile is a collective vision outlining the Nazareth community's aspirations for all students. It encompasses the skills our students need to thrive in the world following their elementary-school graduation.
