Admissions

At Nichols School, you will find dedicated faculty focused on preparing students to thrive in the global community of the 21st century. With an average class size of 14, teachers foster each student’s talents beyond the limitations of standardized testing to develop intellectual and extracurricular passions. Through challenging academics, exceptional art and athletic programs, and fulfilling leadership and character education opportunities, students are engaged in experiences suiting a wide range of talents and interests. Lasting friendships are forged with peers and teachers alike, and through meaningful relationships with advisors, teachers, coaches and other mentors, each and every student is known as an individual.

Families of prospective or admitted students can email admissions@nicholsschool.org and a member of the Admissions Office will contact you shortly.
