We are very excited about the creation of the region's first Inter-Parish School and believe that this model has a lot to offer to our children and families. Please take a moment to get to know us by reviewing our website and/or by contacting the School Office. We are very excited to launch into the next wave of Catholic Education in our region and hope you are willing and able to join us as we Envision the Future.
For prospective families, the best place to research would be to start at the beginning... Our History. While our history is very brief it explains why these parishes have converged to create and sustain what we believe is the future of Catholic Education.
St. Nicholas Academy strives to cooperate with the family, church, civil society and community in the total education of the child: moral, physical, and intellectual. While sharing in this task of education, the school recognizes its primary responsibility to guide the intellectual development of the student. With proper emphasis given to Catholic Christian Doctrine, this development encompasses the areas of Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics, so that the pupil may grow in love and knowledge of God. In this way, St. Nicholas Academy attempts to help the students develop both their capabilities and proper attitudes.
Existing as it does in a time of change, the school desires to guide the children so that they may readily adapt to the changes in the Church and in the society in which they live. St. Nicholas Academy wishes to instill in its students a respect for the individual, regardless of race, creed or ethnic background.
Children are, in the most real sense, a special gift of God, our greatest responsibility, and the most significant contributing factor to the world in which they will live as adults. Parents, teachers, and administrators have an immense responsibility to these children and to God. At St. Nicholas Academy, it is believed that this responsibility can best be met by working together in close communication and in realization of our goal: A Catholic Christian Community.
Most parents find a level of school involvement with which they are comfortable. Very few parents in any school are really comfortable if they have no involvement at all with the community in which their children spend most of the day. It is the hope of the faculty and staff of St. Nicholas Academy that the years spent here by parents and students will result in growth toward more meaningful Christian lives. Catholic Christian education is the goal. Supportive collaboration and deep mutual respect are the primary means that help promote this goal at St. Nicholas Academy. Together we will "Envision the Future".
The aims and objectives of St. Nicholas Academy are:
