Academics at Durham Nativity School

Vision Statement

It was the vision of our founder and past Chair of the Board of Directors, Dr. Joseph Moylan, that Durham Nativity School provide a learning environment for eligible boys in grades six through eight which supports them in their personal, social, moral, and intellectual development, as well as positions them to be successful at an independent, college-preparatory high school.

Promoting an academic program that fosters excellence in traditional liberal arts disciplines and a focus of Judeo-Christian values, DNS strives to help students with opportunities to engage in activities that promote sound physical and mental health, artistic achievement and character development guided by a faculty and staff who believe in each student as an individual.

Offering an extended day and an extended year program, the ultimate goal of DNS is to provide a holistic learning opportunity for its students so that they will be inspired to develop the skills and critical thinking necessary to become educated leaders and role models within the community.
