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
