Durham Nativity School seeks to admit young men and families who value education and are committed to meeting the expectations of our twelve-year program. Our graduates are afforded the opportunity to attend independent, college preparatory high schools, and earn a college degree.
Students who are successful at DNS enjoy learning, are motivated to succeed in a focused academic environment, and possess honesty, integrity, and self-discipline. The admissions process is designed to identify students and families who will benefit from our specialized instruction and programs and thrive in our learning environment.
Parents and guardians are expected to support and reinforce the core values and best practices of the Durham Nativity School. Parental involvement and commitment to the educational process produces a more socially and academically successful child.
