Dedicated to helping children realize their tremendous potential, Saint Francis Academy provides high-quality Catholic education in a nurturing, supportive environment.
Academic instruction, sacramental preparation, and spiritual formation combine to give students in pre-kindergarten to grade eight a well-rounded foundation for a life of learning and growing in God's love.
We participate in activities designed to strengthen the Christian spirit within our school community.
We hope that, upon leaving our school, the student will carry this Christian spirit into the community.
