St. Nicholas recognizes that the elementary school years are a critical time for the development of intellectual curiosity as well as social, emotional, and physical growth. Our program provides a stimulating academic environment through which children grow intellectually, realizing personal creativity and competency. During their years at St. Nicholas, youngsters develop self-confidence in themselves and a respect for the diversity of the world around them.
Classes are intimate with a structure that optimizes interactions between teacher and student. Children also work in small groups and enjoy hands-on learning. The curriculum is grounded in the fundamentals of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies and complemented by instruction in foreign language, art, music, library, physical wellness, and technology.
In the Episcopal tradition, St. Nicholas believes in the importance of spiritual growth and of building a community of individuals who are kind, honest, cooperative, self-reliant, and compassionate.
