Application Process

St. Nicholas is enthusiastic to introduce its program to parents who are eager to learn about our school.  Therefore, the process for prospective parents is simple and friendly.

The admission office welcomes inquiries at any time during the year. For families interested in enrolling for the following school year, fall is the ideal time to visit the campus and submit an application.     

1. Inquire and Visit - Schedule a Tour

Call the admission office at (423) 899-1999 for an admission packet or request a packet from chasden@stns.org.   After reviewing the admission packet, arrange a time to visit and tour the campus to learn about St. Nicholas’ unique educational program.  Tours begin in the fall of the school year. The visits begin at 8:20 am, and are approximately 90 minutes in duration.  We begin with chapel, visit with the Head of School, and tour classrooms. The campus tour is designed for parents only – your child will be invited to visit at a later date.

3. Schedule Admission Assessment

Arrange an assessment appointment for your child. Assessments for the Early Learning Center are scheduled for the week of February 25, 2019 for individual visits, and for either March 8 or March 11, 2019 for group visits.

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SCHOOLS THAT HAVE EARLIER DEADLINES FOR APPLICATION,  WE WILL BE HAPPY TO ARRANGE AN EARLIER ASSESSMENT APPOINTMENT FOR YOUR CHILD.

Primary Levels 3 through 7 [grades 1 through 5] assessments are ongoing by individual appointment.  When your child comes for an assessment visit, please bring a copy of his/her birth certificate, and if applicable, copies of the results of any standardized testing as well as his/her most recent report card.  Applicants for the Early Learning Center will only need a copy of their birth certificates.

4. Next Steps

Admission Notification

Notification letters are mailed in March for children entering St. Nicholas through the Early Learning Center. Notification letters for children entering St. Nicholas as students in Levels 3 through 7 are mailed within a few days after their assessment visit.  For students applying after those dates, assessments will be scheduled individually and vacancies will be filled on an as-available basis.

Parents' Reply Deadline

Parents of newly accepted students are asked to notify the admission office of their decision within a week.
