About St. Nicholas Academy

The Mission of St. Nicholas Academy is to partner with under-resourced families to break the cycle of poverty for children through supportive care and exemplary education.

At St. Nicholas, we work with families to give their sons the best opportunity possible to succeed in school and life. Our goal is that they reach their fullest potential and become the best men they can possibly be.

Inspired by Jesus Christ’s love for all, we dedicate our resources to helping boys grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually by providing the following resources free of charge:

A safe, loving, and supportive living and learning experience at St. Nicholas
A quality education at St. Peter Interparish School in Jefferson City, Missouri
A year-round program with summer activities that provide many growth-filled experiences

Why Work Here?

“You will be changing the lives of children through supportive care and exemplary education.”

St. Nicholas Academy has an immediate need for Houseparents. Houseparents are married couples who live at St. Nicholas Academy and care for boys aged 5 to 18. You will be a supervising adult presence in a boarding school that is committed to providing a stable, loving and supportive home environment while ensuring the health and wellbeing of our boarding students. You are essential in managing each student’s home away from home, by preparing them for school each morning, cooking dinner, providing transportation to school and enrichment opportunities, helping with homework, assisting them in their daily lives, and more. Houseparents are there for their students before and after school, ensuring they have the care, structure, and opportunities to thrive in all areas of life. They also serve as role models by guiding, correcting, encouraging, nurturing, and inspiring their students. Successful houseparents are mission-minded and have a vision for positive transformation for each resident.

This is a year-round, full-time position, with paid time off and many weekend and holidays free. Each houseparent receives a salary plus a compensation package that includes a rent-free apartment, meals, utilities, and use of a minivan.
