A New Chapter for Nazareth Elementary

April 11, 2017

The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Rochester are excited to announce a new chapter in the longstanding history of Nazareth Schools. Beginning fall 2017, Nazareth Elementary School will continue its educational program just a few blocks down the street at the former Sacred Heart Cathedral School.

The school’s pre K through 6 program will move to the new location this summer. Sister Margaret Mancuso will continue as principal and the school will be fully operational in its new space, starting in September for the 2017-18 school year.

In 2015 the Sisters of Saint Joseph sold the Lake Avenue Campus which, in addition to the elementary school, once housed Nazareth Academy, the Nazareth Convent and two other convents on the property, to the Education Success Network. Since that time, the Sisters have been leasing the space for the elementary school.

Though Nazareth’s address is changing, please be assured that our staff, our mission, and our programs will remain as strong as ever. For over 145 years the Nazareth Schools have set themselves apart with a unique and spirit filled curriculum. This exceptional academic and faith based education will continue at our new location, providing the Rochester community with a nurturing educational environment that embraces children and families of all faiths and ethnicities.
