For nearly 65 years, St. Francis High School has provided an outstanding Catholic education for students across the western suburbs. The vision of 741 “founding families” in partnership with the Diocese of Joliet, the Institute of the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Wheaton Franciscan Sisters, and Sisters from the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM) that began in 1957 is alive and well today!
As we look to the future, SFHS remains committed to providing a Catholic education that transforms hearts, minds, and the world around us. This vision and plan are the culmination of a multi-year effort on the part of our Board, faculty, staff, and specialized experts. The goal: to ensure a bold and lasting future for SFHS.
