Parish History

[Parish History] Fr. Spencer Kezios had a dream that one day Saint Nicholas Church would have a parochial school. The Sunday School building was designed so that when the time came, a school could flourish on the premises. One January evening in 1977, the first members of the school board met. They were to formulate the philosophy of the new school.

Saint Nicholas would be child-centered, meeting the spiritual, physical, academic, and social needs of each student. It would be a traditional school where the basics would be strongly emphasized. For enrichment, music, art, social studies, science, and physical education would be a part of the curriculum. There would be a strong emphasis on high academic standards, so that students would be prepared to enter any high school or college of their choice.

The school finally opened its doors in September of 1977. As our reputation grew, and our enrollment increased, more space was needed. Our two-story building was completed in 1979 and includes a full size gymnasium, an auditorium, a music room, as well as twelve additional classrooms.
