Nativity School of Worcester, an all-boys tuition-free Jesuit school, has launched a $20-million campaign to open a girl’s division. 

Nativity School opened in 2003 to provide educational opportunities to boys from underserved communities. The girl’s division initiative, to be called Julie Power Girls Division, is set to open in July, according to a Sunday press release from the school.

The school has been quietly raising funds for the campaign since October 2022 and has reached $14 million in gifts and pledges. The campaign was bolstered with a $3-million donation from the family of Worcester native J.D. Power III and Kenrose Kitchen Table Foundation in California. 

“The response to the quiet phase of the campaign has far exceeded our expectations. Donors have consistently pointed to the success of the school over the past 20 years as the motivating factor behind their commitment to help us strengthen Nativity’s offerings and most importantly to provide the same opportunities for young women in Worcester. Our long-held dream of opening a Girls’ Division is now within sight. We are so grateful that both boys and girls from Worcester will now join in the Nativity Worcester promise to educate the whole person,” Chris Collins, attorney at Worcester-based Mirick O'Connell, co-chair of the campaign committee, said in the press release.

Nativity School of Worcester had $4.8 million in revenue in 2022, according to nonprofit database Guidestar.
