Our Philosophy

Mary of Nazareth School is a Christ-centered environment where each child, nurtured by parent, parish and educator, is encouraged to follow the example of Jesus in all aspects of life. Our students thrive in an environment of regular worship, service, daily prayer, devotion to Mary, and consistent reference to the word of God. We welcome diversity among our inclusive student-body and stress the unifying concepts of tolerance, love and respect. Students are encouraged to seek knowledge through the teachings of the Catholic Church and apply those teachings to daily life.

Mary of Nazareth School is comprised of three age-focused programs: early childhood, intermediate and middle school. Within these programs, teachers collaborate to develop and strengthen relationships. These interdependent relationships within the school community are fostered through the leadership of administrators.

The curriculum of the Archdiocese of Washington is viewed from a Catholic perspective, with a central love for the wisdom that comes from the Holy Spirit. The faculty is aware that the manner in which we model our love of God and Church encourages our students in their own search for lasting faith. Families of our students and their individual parishes continue to foster a love for Christ and a respect for education. Parents are the primary educators; in partnership, teachers and parents strive for the overall success of each student.

We are dedicated to providing students with a well-rounded curriculum, which focuses on the spiritual, developmental, emotional, cognitive, and physical well being of our students. Recognizing the multiple learning styles and diverse needs present in each classroom, the educators differentiate with a variety of resources, teaching methods and assessments. Through reinforcement, praise and consequence, we foster an enthusiasm for education. As a result, our students develop the inner confidence to make choices that positively impact their world.

I think we can all relate!
"And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened , and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed” --Kitty O’Meara
Today’s celebration of the Solemn Mass of the Annunciation from the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth reminded me of my trip to the Holy Land. The wall and steps behind the alter are believed to a portion of out Blessed Mother’s home when she was visited by the Angel Gabriel. If you look closely at the picture of me in front of the gate, you can see that I am wearing a Mary of Nazareth School shirt. I felt such a connection between Mary of Nazareth students, their families and Mary, our patroness when I was there. As we navigate through this very strange time, I am so grateful for being reminded of the important connection we all share. Thank you all for making our school community so wonderful.
