School Mission

Durham Nativity School will cultivate a community of responsible citizens who actively engage in educational experiences that promote lifelong learning and community change through the enhancement of critical thinking skills, encouraging self-reflection, and demonstrating respect for all! The overall mission of the Durham Nativity School (DNS) is based on the highly successful model of other Nativity Miguel Schools across the country --to help break the cycle of poverty through a quality middle school education that will help empower each child to reach their full potential. DNS is committed to bringing an education to boys who would not ordinarily be able to afford or have access to a quality private school education in the Durham area. The school provides the boys with emotional, social, moral and intellectual support through small classes, an extended day and a year-round program. We consider our mission to be an eleven year process with our students because we follow all of our students to high school and on to college.
