St. Nicholas School's Full Profile



St. Nicholas School says

Saint Nicholas School exists to provide a Catholic atmosphere in which our students can develop spiritually, intellectually, phisically and socially. To accomplish this, we strive to instill basic Catholic beliefs, prayer and traditional devotions; to provide the best instruction possible in the areas of the language arts, mathemathics, social studies, science and the arts; and to implant and nurture a set of moral values which will serve as a guide for our students in their attitudes and personal decisions, both now and in their futures lives.


The primary goal of the program of instruction in our elementary schools is to provide learning experience in a Catholic environment that will assist the students in their religious, spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development.

The schools of the Archdiocese of Newark are involved in a multi-year curriculum mapping project which will result in the development of subject area curriculum maps that clearly articulate the content and skills students will be learning in each subject in each grade level. Curriculum mapping is a process that helps schools and districts/dioceses determine the “agreed-upon” learning for all students. This process will ensure that a consistent, clearly articulated curriculum infused with Gospel values is being provided to all students in our schools.

Relevant educational standards, including those proposed by content area experts, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, and the Common Core Curriculum Standards, will be used as a resource in the curriculum mapping process. While academic standards will be referenced in the Archdiocesan curriculum maps to indicate which standards are being addressed, it is the expertise and experience of the educators within our schools that will determine the content and skills students will be expected to master.

Mission Statement

Our mission at Saint Nicholas School is to embrace, nurture, and educate all God's children, preparing them for lives of service and leadership rooted in the Catholic values of faith, hope, and love.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
