Welcome to St. Francis School! 

Enrollment opens each January for the upcoming school year for Preschool 3 through Grade 8.

St. Francis School provides students a quality education grounded in Christian principles. Founded in 1893, our school stresses values and academic ideals that encourage the personal and spiritual development necessary to empower children to grow into kind and compassionate adults who meet the demands of a fulfilling life and understand and appreciate their own value.

  • Academic excellence
  • Creating a safe & nuturing environment
  • Christian values & faith formation
  • Making Catholic education affordable to all families

As a Catholic school, Saint Francis is dedicated to the development of strong Christian principles within its students. It seeks to instill within each student high moral values and a positive attitude towards self, other students, adults, and education in general.
