Applying to Nightingale is easy.
Nightingale’s Middle School provides opportunities for students to establish strong, independent voices. Students immerse themselves in a broad based liberal arts curriculum, are exposed to a variety of STEAM experiences, and take on leadership roles inside and outside of the classrooms. They are challenged in an inclusive environment that teaches them to advocate for themselves and for others, as well as to question the status quo.

Schedule Schoolhouse Tour and Family Interview
