WHY CHOOSE ST. NICHOLAS SCHOOL
When considering an educational choice, families must evaluate the best learning environment and experience for their child who has the world before them. Our goal is to provide a place where families and students feel connected, engaged and discover that they are lifelong learners. Our joy is when we see students, at any age level , confident in their abilities, expressing their opinions and faithful that they can make a change in the world. Our educators focus on elevating their social emotional intelligence as much as their intellectual ability.
I encourage our prospective families to spend time speaking to current families, explore our website or attend our virtual open house, to see what a Catholic educational experience can offer your child. We bring all walks of faith together as we partner with parents to develop and guide their moral decision making. Proven results are based on a commitment to use data driven evidence to know how each child is growing. We challenge students to rise to their potential through engagement and sparking the curiosity in them to want to know more. Finally, our mission is that our students know they are capable and purpose driven individuals sharing their God given gifts to others.
During this historical year, we have never been more proud to offer our students the nurturing and engaging experience in-person or during distance learning. One community at all times, and always faithful to our mission.
