Our Mission

To inspire young men and women through faith formation and academic excellence to become compassionate leaders and grow toward Full Stature in Christ.

In Chapter 4 of St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians, St. Paul encourages Christ’s followers “to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry, for building up the Body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of faith and knowledge of the Son of God, to the extent of the full stature of Christ.” At McNicholas, this is our ultimate purpose and foundation—literally carved into our cornerstone—to grow toward Full Stature in Christ.

Faith Formation

Our students develop an ability to see the world through a Catholic lens and understand that faith is the gift from God which precedes all others because it initiates, motivates, and animates all other gifts and values.

Academic Excellence

Our students are prepared to go forth in the world by a rigorous academic program that is customized to their individual gifts, talents, and interests.

Compassionate Leadership

Our students strive to live a life in service to others, to work for justice, and to be compassionate leaders in their homes, careers, vocations, and communities.

McNick is an excellent academic school with Christian ethics where our daughter has grown not only her intelligence but also her spirituality. McNick has given her so many opportunities to grow into a confident, informed and faith-filled young lady. I cannot image a better experience to prepare her for what lies ahead.

McNick has taught me and my peers that selflessness, compassion, and empathy play such an important role in our lives, and we want to take what we have learned here and make an impact on other people.Claire, Class of '21
