Welcome to St. Nicholas!

When I first toured campus, I told my wife Emily that she had to come see the school and meet the community. The spirit of the campus, parents, students, alumni, faculty and staff is palpable. We both fell in love with the community. One year later, we are settling into our home in Chattanooga, excited to be a part of this very special community.

For new or inquiring parents, welcome to St. Nicholas School "where the love of learning takes root." After you finish your virtual tour of our school, please consider making time for a visit to campus. Printed words and photographs cannot convey the spirit of our community to comprehend what makes St. Nicholas such a special place. We are an innovative, student-centered, PK3-5th grade, elementary program dedicated to its Episcopal identity.

Because we are purely an elementary program and campus, we are able to provide students with rigorous academic programming that is child-centered and individualized to challenge them. An elementary campus also allows students to grow into themselves without being rushed, giving them the gift of childhood. It is a wonderful place to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
