St. Francis de Sales School is committed to creating a loving and caring Catholic community where teaching and learning supports all children in becoming the best they can be in mind, body, and spirit.
Catholic theology recognizes parents as being primarily responsible for the education of their children.
Therefore, collaboration between the family, school, and parish staff is essential to the success of each child and to the success of the overall St. Francis de Sales community.
The schools of the Diocese of Columbus are committed to developing productive citizens of the world capable of responding appropriately to differences among people and meeting the challenges of a rapidly changing society.
At St. Francis, we firmly believe and fully participate in this commitment.
This is evidenced in our strong technology program, our emphasis on developing thinking and reasoning skills for students at all age levels, and our on-going efforts to develop the whole person.
The mission of St. Francis de Sales School is to create a loving and caring Catholic community where teaching and learning support all children in becoming the best they can be in mind, body, and spirit.
