We aim to help break the cycle of poverty through a quality middle school education that will help empower each child to reach their full potential. Durham Nativity School serves middle school boys who come from financially challenged (low income) families. The students should be able to thrive in a structured, academically challenging environment focused on the development of leadership skills and community service. 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. Our faculty and staff work to help our students become young men ready for the rigors of college preparatory high schools and, consequently colleges. Our Board of Directors has also adopted a high school tuition assistance program that will allow us to continue supporting our graduates that attend a college preparatory high school that does not offer a full scholarship. This funding will ultimately become an endowment fund that will subsidize their high school education when needed. In addition, the DNS Volunteer/Graduate Support Coordinator will continue to follow each graduate’s progress throughout his high school and college years in order to further emphasize our commitment to our students. It is our ultimate desire to have our DNS graduates return and serve this community following their college graduation. Our administration will continue to put forth our eleven year commitment to our student’s parents and would urge them to recognize that process with their ongoing parental/guardian support of volunteerism. In the non-sectarian Nativity model our students are enrolled without regard to race, color, religion or ethnicity, but all must qualify for the federal meal program. Above all, the boys and their families must be committed to our rigorous schedule. The school is not tuition driven, but completely dependent on private donation. We require active parental involvement and hire faculty and staff fully dedicated to our mission. Durham Nativity School is educating boys who will break across barriers to become tomorrow’s leaders and role models within the community.
