St. Francis of Assisi School is part of the educational mission of the Catholic church. Passing on the Catholic faith to our students and their families serves as the most important work we do. We pray that all students who walk through our doors will experience the calming peace of our patron, Francis of Assisi. We are fully attentive to the way Francis of Assisi grew in his relationship with God – through simplicity, prayer, stewardship, and awareness of the Divine in all living things. We strive to weave this charism throughout the fabric of school life.
The Franciscan spirituality, passed down through the Sisters of St. Francis, inspires the teaching and learning experienced in our classrooms. Our strong Catholic identity is evidenced by a school environment forged by relationships – with God, family, students, and community – that allows children to learn and grow to their maximum potential. We understand and celebrate the significant roles that our priests, administrators, teachers, and staff play in the lives of our students, believing that these special relationships can be paramount to a child’s initial growth and understanding of God's infinite love.
