Our History

In 1995, St. Nicholas parishioners founded Holy Family School, an independent Catholic School. In 2000, Holy Family School became St. Nicholas Catholic School when it was incorporated as a parish school within the Archdiocese of Seattle. The school’s mission and philosophy statements were modified in 2000 to reflect the new affiliation with the St. Nicholas Parish.

The school campus consists of six modular buildings surrounding a grass courtyard. These buildings house one class for each grade, Preschool through 8th, and our administrative offices. Technology and music classes, the school library, the Development office, and lunch program are locatedĀ in the Parish Hall.

Students come to St. Nicholas primarily from Gig Harbor, the Key Peninsula,and South Kitsap County. Both the school and parish reflect the vibrancy of these communities!
