Applications for the 2020-21
Nativity Academy year are now closed.

Mandatory Summer Session Dates:
After much thought, consideration and in accordance with Governor Beshear’s guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the summer session for this year.

If you answer “yes” to these questions, you should consider Nativity Academy:

  • Do you have a child who will enter grade 5, 6, 7, or 8 in
    August 2020?
  • Do you want to see your child succeed in high school
    and college?
  • Do you want an Academy environment for your child
    that provides study hall, mentoring and after-class
    enrichment activities?
  • Can you pay a $20 per month activities fee?
  • Would your child be successful in small, gender-separate classes with more one-on-one attention from teachers?
We invite parents, guardians, and students to call any time for more information: 502-855-3300.
