Founded in August 2003 by Fr. Tim Hogan, former pastor of St. Boniface parish in Louisville, Kentucky and by Fr. William Fichteman, former pastor of the Cathedral of the Assumption, and administered by Sr. Paula Kleine-Kracht OSU, Nativity Academy at St. Boniface was established as an independent private middle school in the Catholic tradition to educate urban youth.
Nativity Academy transforms the lives of students who have a commitment to achievement and whose families demonstrate financial need.
Nativity Academy seeks to impart to its students the highest spiritual ideals, moral values, knowledge, learning skills, discipline, character formation and personal care.
Because the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville and the Xaverian Brothers sponsor it, Nativity Academy teaches formal religion classes within the faith-based tradition. All students participate in ecumenical and Catholic prayer services, but are not required to be, or become Catholic.
