The Menard Family Foundation is pleased to offer a scholarship to one of the students at Nativity Prep Academy in San Jose, CA known as Sacred Heart Nativity School for boys and Our Lady of Grace Nativity School for girls. Director Barbara Menard was able to visit the school, meet Principal Laura Macias and the student they are currently sponsoring. The visit included time for tea and cookies, a thorough tour of the school and the playground area and an opportunity to learn about the growth of the school and their future plans. The mission of Sacred Heart Nativity School for boys and Our Lady of Grace Nativity School for girls is to be an urban Catholic middle school that seeks to educate young men and women to enter college preparatory high school programs in partnership with the Society of Jesus, the Diocese of San José, and the Parish of Sacred Heart. The schools are dedicated to providing a Catholic education for students of low-income families, with priority given to families of Sacred Heart community. In the Jesuit tradition, Nativity students are encouraged to deepen their relationship with God as they become women and men for others.
