McNick teachers know their students well--we have a 12:1 student to teacher ratio.
The Coed Advantage
Preparing students academically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially demands an environment that is reflective of the real world.
The Catholic, coed environment at McNicholas uniquely equips our students for the college classroom, the workplace, and beyond by developing cooperation, emotional and logical intelligence, and leadership skills.
Give your student the Coed Advantage.
The coed environment at McNicholas encourages collaboration and communication with the opposite gender. It affords students the opportunity to break down stereotypes and build unity between genders. These experiences and values create the foundation for healthy family and career relationships.
Students and graduates will tell you—the community of McNicholas is like no other. The family atmosphere at McNicholas grows out of the opportunity boys and girls have to learn together, pray together, celebrate together, and serve together. They experience the ups and down of high school and support each other along the way. Because of the coed environment at McNicholas, social and emotional bonds are forged which help students become accountable, compassionate young people connected to the school and to one another for life.
At McNicholas, both boys and girls grow into academically-sound, faithful young adults who understand that success is the result of hard work, not innate or perceived gender-linked talent. Students discover their values, skills, and strengths in our coed setting where boys and girls learn from each other. School cultures like McNicholas, where all students, regardless of gender, are viewed as capable of succeeding through hard work, produce highly confident and high achieving students.
