About Us

St. Nicholas School is a Catholic school established in 1886. It operates today under the Archdiocese of Newark Schools Office. It is staffed by a certified lay faculty and the Sisters of Christian Charity.

Our Catholic atmosphere provides the students with the opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially. We are committed to the challenging task of teaching as Jesus did and living His mission. We endeavor to bring out the best in every child.
