School Notes:

Children attending St. Francis de Sales are guided and encouraged to reach their academic potential and achieve academic success.  Teachers are mindful of the individual academic abilities of their students, as well as their spiritual and emotional needs.   Students’ faith is fostered through prayer, sacraments, and special liturgies.  Our children’s social consciences and moral responsibilities are developed through participation in outreach and service projects.  St. Francis de Sales is the place for your child if you are looking for a challenging academic experience steeped in the gospel values that permeate the halls of our school.  This site is only a small window into what can be found at St. Francis de Sales; please come see for yourself all that we have to offer to your children.
