A Message From Our Principal

  • Nazareth Elementary School is a special place – a place of warmth, love and community! You can see it in our students, experience it among the staff, and feel it in the halls and classrooms! There is a light that shines on Nazareth, illuminating the minds, hearts and spirits of the entire Nazareth family.

    At Nazareth, we continue a long-standing commitment to academic excellence in a faith-filled, nurturing environment, embracing children and families of all faiths and ethnicities from the city and surrounding districts. For over 145 years the Sisters of Saint Joseph have been providing quality Catholic education through the Nazareth Schools – Nazareth Hall (Elementary) and Nazareth Academy.

    As we enter a new era for Nazareth Elementary School steeped in the rich tradition of the Nazareth Schools, we embrace Nazareth Academy’s motto: dominus illuminatio mea, "The Lord is my Light." We know God will continue to guide us in our new home on Flower City Park, the former Sacred Heart Cathedral School.

    We hope you’ll read more about our history and the outstanding curricular and extra-curricular programs Nazareth students enjoy today. We invite you to come and see first-hand the many advantages our school offers.

    Choosing a school for your child is a very important decision. A Nazareth education is an investment in your child’s future. Join us on the journey that will shape the leaders of tomorrow. Walk with us as together we grow, we dream, we hope and we look to a future full of promise.

    Wishing you peace and many blessings,
    Sr. Margaret Mancuso, SSJ
