|Experience St. Francis HS|
Come. Walk our hallways. You will feel the energy. Talk with our students. You will feel their passion. Meet our teachers, coaches, and staff. You will feel their dedication. Take time to experience St. Francis, because young people thrive here.
The St. Francis experience is unlike any other. Here, we balance academic excellence with a warm, dynamic environment where people know your name and want to help one another. The size of our high school is ideal, encouraging students to engage academically and to lead through participation. We respect that young people learn in many ways. And we cultivate character as well as classroom success.
St. Francis College Preparatory challenges young people and promotes critical thinking. Our hallmark is threefold: foundational core curriculum, honors and college-level Advanced Placement classes, and academic electives for college and career focus. We serve approximately 805 students of various academic abilities, national origins, and socioeconomic and religious backgrounds.
Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition and the charisms of St. Francis of Assisi, we are committed to helping students understand who they are as young Catholic women and men. We offer Communion daily; pray together in class; celebrate mass; and extend ourselves through retreats, campus ministry, and service. In fact, each St. Francis student completes 60 hours of Christian service, as we strive to build habits of serving those in need and pursuing spiritual growth and truth.
St. Francis graduates well-rounded, socially responsible young adults. Academically focused and confident, they earn placement at excellent colleges and universities. And when they return, our alumni say St. Francis fortified them to succeed in college and as leaders in our culture.
This is St. Francis. This is the humble transformation that unfolds when you leave the bustle of Roosevelt Road and soak in the spirit of our school, the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, our patron. Experience St. Francis. You can thrive here!
