High School

We focus on loving God, loving Neighbor, and loving Self.

In high school, we focus on advocacy, service projects, peer support, and building community. Students will explore their personal relationship with Jesus and define what they believe.

Not only will you be able to learn and grow as a person, but you’ll also be a part of a supportive community that has a lot of fun together.

Are you interested in leadership developments? Service Projects? LGBTQAI+ and BIPOC Advocacy? Retreats? ELCA college tours? Let us know how we can help you continue your growth. Sign up below 🙂

What are you working on now?

‘Find Your Fit’ training starts this fall!

It’s about… 

… Understanding your spiritual gifts and talents. (This is the specialness that God has gifted you with.)
… Naming your values and passions. (We will walk through how to identify and name yours.)
… Recognizing your personality preferences. (Each of us has a natural preference for working and communicating. Knowing yours will make a world of difference.)
Once we have named our gifts, talents, values, passions, and preferences,  we can ‘Find Our Fit’ in any community. Please join us this fall!

Student Action Leadership Team

What is SALT?

SALT is a Student Leadership Team for 10th -12th-grade students. Participants learn about their unique talents and spiritual gifts. They learn about (and use) leadership skills both at Nativity and in your community.

Every person is uniquely and wonderfully made, we all have the power and ability to care for others that no one else can replicate. Every student is a leader and needed to improve the community. How we use our uniqueness (for the good of others) is just ONE way that we can grow closer to God.
