Tuition Assistance


St. Nicholas School and the Diocese of San Jose have funds available that may be awarded based on demonstrated need.  St. Nicholas School families may apply to the scholarship fund each spring through the PSAS student aid Plan.  The Pastor and Principal coordinate this program.  Financial Aid is confidential and available to all students and families who need assistance.  For more information please contact the St. Nicholas School Office via email or at (650) 941-4056. 




The Scrip program is sponsored by the Parent Teacher Group (PTG) and is the second largest fundraiser for the school. Funds raised by this program are reinvested in St. Nicholas to support the rising cost of education. Use Scrip cards when making everyday purchases and a percentage of your purchase is given back to the school. There are numerous Scrip vendors, which include grocery stores, retail stores, restaurant chains, gas stations and many others. Simply by shopping for groceries as you ordinarily do, St. Nicholas School benefits tremendously!
