St Francis Catholic School

  • St. Francis Catholic School's mission is to nurture its students' spiritual and intellectual growth in an authentically Catholic community committed to academic excellence.
  • In order to implement our mission we strive to help children grow and mature in their faith-life through participation in the sacramental life of the Church; to teach authentic Catholic doctrine in accordance with the Magisterium of the Church; to provide each student with a solid academic background, using the best available teaching methods, materials, and technology; to encourage each student to become self-disciplined through a consistent, fair, and structured environment; to help each child to develop intellectually in order to meet the demands of society and to make valid choices based on truth;and to instill in each child a concern and awareness for the oppressed and needy, motivating him/her to action and service.
  • Our hope is that every graduate of St. Francis Catholic School is a person of faith, integrity, and scholarship.
