St. Frances de Sales is a Catholic K through 8 school, develops and educates the whole child to be active in Catholic faith, academically prepared, accepting of others, accountable for all actions, and articulate communicator.
It is our goal to instill in the students the knowledge, faith and love that encompass the teachings of the Catholic Church, educating the heart as well as the mind.
This is achieved through collaboration with the parents, teachers and staff, clergy, and parish community.
We are dedicated to the development of our students as they strive to be active in the Catholic faith and their love for Christ, living a life reflective of Gospel teachings and values.
Our challenge is to integrate and live this faith in our educational development of the students.
We prepare our students academically to meet the worldly challenges they face, as well as to live a Christ-centered life as they apply His teachings to their decisions.
