At. St. Francis School, we believe that all students have exceptional talents and gifts that are unique. Each individual should have the opportunity to develop those talents. To accomplish this, our school offers our students a number of ways to excel and grow outside of traditional academics. We offer many ways for our students to explore their creative sides at St. Francis so that they can find an activity which they enjoy and can excel. Some examples are:
- Concert Band
- County Band
- Instrumental Lessons (individual and group)
- Mass Choir
- Math 24 Competition
- National Junior Honor Society
- Science Fair
- Night at the Museum
- Enrichment Program (for eligible gifted students)

National Junior Honor Society
Eligible seventh and eighth grade students may join St. Francis’s Pony Pride Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society for our Middle School students.
From the NJHS website:
The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in official Honor Society activities. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
