We Invite You....

We invite you to visit! Now is an exciting time to consider St. Mary Nativity. Our school is advancing in curriculum, instruction, technology and faith formation. Whether your child is just beginning in Preschool or Kindergarten, or is in 1st-8th grades (we accept transfer students in every grade, as long as we have openings), we hope St. Mary Nativity is a great fit for your child and your family. 


Choosing a school is a major decision for your family. Open House and On-Site Visits give detailed information, as well as a window into school life, the ability to see the facilities, and a chance to have your questions answered.

Join us at our Open House:


For older students, we know transferring schools is a big change. We invite your child to visit, shadow a current student and experience a day at St. Mary Nativity. It is important to us to make transferring a positive, welcoming, successful transition!

For more details or to schedule a Shadow visit please contact the school office at 815-722-8518 and speak with Jennifer Martinez - 



We invite you to gather with the school community for All-School Mass. We celebrate Mass together each Wednesday morning at 8:30 am (with a few exceptions to honor Feast Days) in the Church and all are welcome.

All-School Masses are attended by grades 1-8, with Kindergarteners attending periodically for special Masses. A special time of reverence, prayer and community, All-School Masses give a glimpse into what epitomizes the St. Mary Nativity School experience. 

St. Mary Nativity School is located at 702 N. Broadway Ave. in Joliet, IL. We hope to see you soon.
