 Naz Students Attend Inaugural CSJ Leadership Conference
Nazareth Academy, together with our CSJ sister schools, St. Joseph’s Academy Baton Rouge and Saint Joseph Academy Cleveland, participated in the first CSJ/SSJ Student Leadership Conference. Thirty students from the three schools, plus ten from Mount St. Joseph in Philadelphia, gathered on the campus of Chestnut Hill, an SSJ College in Pennsylvania, June 11-15, to learn more about the history, mission and charism of the Congregation of St. Joseph.

“It is our hope and desire to bring the core and heart of the CSJ mission to our students and to the climate and culture of Nazareth. Deeply engaging some of our school leaders in this experience is a great way to do this. At the same time we launched new ways of connecting to other high schools who have the same goal and purpose,” said Principal Deborah Tracy.
