Athletics & Clubs
As athletic competition promotes conditioning, character, leadership, and teamwork among Nativity students, the school sponsors various competitive teams throughout the school year. All students must participate in athletics annually. Nativity athletics involve appropriate seasonal sports, including cross-country, soccer, basketball, sailing, and numerous recreational athletic opportunities.
In addition to athletics, students participate in numerous club opportunities. Student input on offerings are sought throughout the year. Club offerings in the past have included Robotics, Culinary Arts, Community Service, Bowling, Flag Football, School Newspaper, and Film Club.
Nativity Prep field trips, scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays during the school year, are designed to add cultural, educational, and community service elements to the program. These trips introduce students to educational and historical sites, monuments and cultural institutions in the area, and give them opportunities to become involved in service work. They are designed to offer a learning experience in which students and members of the community can build ties of friendship and Nativity spirit together.
All field trips provide an active learning experience for each student that reinforces classroom instruction with hands-on activities. Annually, student have the opportunity to visit institutions like the Museum of Science and the New Bedford Whaling Museum. More adventure-oriented trips include rock climbing, nature hikes, and many more!
