Technology Program

St. Nicholas School holds the belief that technology is a valuable and powerful tool that enhances the school’s mission of educating the minds and hearts of the students entrusted to its care and of instilling in them habits of lifelong learning.

Members of the school community are expected to be ethical in their use of technological resources, respect themselves and others, and follow all applicable rules and regulations for using those resources. The skills and perspectives developed at St. Nicholas School need to serve our students as they step out into an increasingly complex information society.

As it welcomes the challenges of the Information Revolution, St. Nicholas School remains committed to academic excellence and to the nurturing of decent, loving, and responsible human beings.
