Joseph D. Allen, Second Headmaster of Nichols School, 1911

Our aim is to train minds, bodies and hearts for the work of life, and to carry into all we do the highest ideals of character and service.
At Nichols School, students are encouraged every day not only to be accepting of challenge, but excited by it. Through caring guidance and unwavering support, they are inspired to face academic, athletic, creative and social growth with confidence, determination and joy. The ease with which our students approach new learning opportunities and experiences becomes a mark of their characters, and is an asset that continues to open doors for them throughout their lives.

As an independent school with an average class size of 14, exceptional teachers go the extra mile and personally commit to understanding each student. They shape the intensive and extensive curriculum as they see fit, making learning rewarding and relevant. As a result, our students are empowered to think critically, creatively, and go beyond the test.
