EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2011
Nativity students are participating in the Photofinish 5K on October 1st to help raise money for their school. They are all well aware that the education that they are receiving is a "gift" from those who believe they deserve the opportunity and they want to help support the school as well.
For those new to our school, Nativity Preparatory Academy is a Catholic private middle school for 5th through 8th grade girls and boys from low income families who live in the city of Rochester. It is based on an eductional model that has been used with remarkable success across the country.
The mission of Nativity is to provide our students, all of whom are well below grade level when they enter our school, with an education that will prepare them with the knowledge and life skills necessary to be successful in a college prep high school and, eventually, college.
Our goal is simple...."to break the cycle of poverty through education, one student at a time".
