Admission Policy

The St. Nicholas admission policy was adopted by the board of trustees in September 1985. 
Revisions were approved in June 1998. 

The St. Nicholas admission process is a competitive process through which we accept:
       a) the child who is capable of functioning  independently; and
       b) the child who demonstrates an average or above average level of readiness skills. 
These criteria are listed in order of priority.  However, St. Nicholas does offer a program in which certified-gifted children may thrive, but giftedness is not a criterion for admission.

Having qualified as set forth above, siblings of currently enrolled students will be granted immediate admission.  Special consideration in the admission process will be given to any qualified Episcopalian in good standing in his/her parish and to children of former St. Nicholas students.  Diversity of socioeconomic, racial, cultural, and religious areas will be emphasized in the admission policy.

Notice of Non-Discriminatory Policy
St. Nicholas School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial aid and other
 school-administered programs.
