Meet Our Principal

Mr. Ryan Pajak


Thank you for visiting our website! 

Nativity is a preschool through 8th-grade school with rich diversity, dedicated teachers, strong academic rigor, and an important focus on our Catholic faith. God’s presence at Nativity is evident in all we do and something that we celebrate as our students learn to be strong, Catholic leaders. Our classes are the perfect ratio between students and teachers where each student receives a personalized education tailored to their unique needs through our blended learning program. The blended learning program utilizes technology, data, and teacher-led small group work to help all of our students grow to reach their full potential. 

Our students live out their faith through service opportunities, weekly mass, adoration, daily prayer, and classroom religious education. All of this, along with a variety of extra-curricular activities, leadership opportunities, and even free busing through Bloomington, make our school an incredible place for the education of hearts and minds!

I have a B.A. in Elementary Education from St. Mary’s University, an M.A. in Educational Leadership from St. Mary’s University, an Educational Specialist Degree from the University of St. Thomas, and a K-12 Principal’s License. I taught 4th grade for seven years at a Catholic elementary school, was assistant principal of that same school for another seven years, and now am in my first year as principal of Nativity of Mary. My experiences have given me a deep appreciation for Catholic education and the value of educating the whole child. I would love for you to visit Nativity of Mary and experience the wonderful whole-child education we offer!
