Nativity Catholic School is comprised of approximately 200 students in Preschool through Eighth Grade. We have dedicated teachers and support staff that, in working with our parents and parishioners, guide our students to achieve academic success while learning to live Christian values and to give of themselves through service to others. Service to others is an important component of our school mission. Each year, our staff, students, and school families are involved in more than forty service projects. Reaching out to those in need is not as much about what we do, as it is about who we are.

Mission Statement

Nativity of Our Lord is a pre-kindergarten through 8th grade Catholic School proudly serving the Rhinelander area for more than a century. In cooperation with parents, parish, and community members, Nativity of Our Lord provides a high quality educational setting in which children can grow academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. We strive to develop a better understanding of the Catholic faith within each student, as we prepare them to be confident, responsible, contributing members of the parish and community. We will do so by following the call of the Gospel and providing a positive, nurturing, individualized, and faith-filled environment
