Mission & Ministry

McNicholas prepares and empowers students, faculty, and staff for lifelong, active discipleship and growth toward Full Stature in Christ.

Our Catholic faith inspires and permeates everything we do as we work to accomplish 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.

Our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph, dedicate themselves to the most perfect love of God “with their feet in the street” to serve their neighbors without distinction. We are inspired by their example to live a life in service to others, to work for justice, and to be compassionate leaders in our homes, careers, vocations, and communities. 

Through liturgy, prayer, retreats, Christian service, and other service-learning and faith-building experiences, students are challenged, encouraged, and inspired to develop their faith and to put it into action. 


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.
