- Mission Statement
- With Jesus Christ as our model and through a dedicated partnership of parish, parents and educators, we strive to prepare our students to become productive global citizens of the twenty-first century.
- St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School identifies faith, scholastic achievement and stewardship as the educational foundation upon which a partnership of home and school is built. We provide a nurturing environment where students can grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, psychologically and physically. Recognizing parents as primary educators, and teachers as facilitators for learning, our students develop within an educational program rooted in Catholic faith that imparts knowledge, values, and life skills according to the individual nees and abilities of each child. Education is a process that transcends the immediate future and with this shared vision, we strive to instill in our students a life-long commitment and societal responsibility to the Christian ideals of peace, justice, equality, and respect for all life.
