Transition to Middle School

Nearly all St. Nicholas graduates are admitted to the middle school of their choice, with the majority matriculating to Baylor, GPS, or McCallie. 

St. Nicholas alumni are comfortable interacting with their teachers and understand that learning is an active, not passive, process.  The St. Nicholas program fosters independence, allowing students to find their voice as a learner. They know how to advocate for themselves and are willing to seek challenges.  Moving from class to class is a regular part of the St. Nicholas School experience as well.

Our graduates are known as motivated individuals, inquisitive thinkers, responsible learners, and assured leaders, prepared for the challenges of the next phase of their education.

But don’t just take our word for it!  Contact the admission office at middle schools you would consider for your child and ask about St. Nicholas graduates.
