Daily Schedule

At McNicholas, we have adapted a typical block schedule to meet the unique needs of our students and our mission.  The result is a distinctive, blended schedule that includes block classes on Tuesdays through Fridays and an eight bell day on Mondays.

Students take 7 classes each semester, plus a study hall.  On Mondays, students attend all eight bells for 40 minutes. This allows teachers to check in with all students at the beginning of the week.  The rest of the week, students attend four bells a day for approximately 85 minutes each.  These longer bells allow time for students to delve deeply into their learning, exploring projects, labs, and other hands-on learning experiences with fewer interruptions.

In addition, we begin each day with CREW where students meet in small groups with a mentor teacher. This student-centered program focuses on the formation of the whole person and the development of healthy relationships that support academic excellence, faith formation, compassionate leadership, stewardship, and competitive spirit.

Thursday morning’s extended CREW allows additional time for meetings and activities. On the second Thursday of most months, we will use the extended CREW time for club meetings.  Students who do not have a club meeting  are permitted to arrive at the beginning of period A rather than at 7:40 a.m.
