Visit St. Francis High School

Explore the St. Francis High School Path

The best way to experience St. Francis High School is to visit the campus and meet some of the people who make it extraordinary.  The Admissions staff at St. Francis High School offers a number of events throughout the year to provide you and your child with the opportunity to see for yourself if our school is the right fit.  We encourage anyone considering St. Francis High School to join us at any of our Admissions events.  Some of these events have a limited capacity, so we encourage you to sign up early.

    Shadow a Spartan!
     
    Our Campus Visit/Shadow Program is an opportunity for prospective students to experience life at SFHS. Students attend daily class, lunch, and other activities their student host has for the day. Our Campus Visit Program is open mid-September through early May.  
     
    Visit Details:
    • Please arrive at 7:45 a.m. at Door #1 (west side of campus). Parking is available in the marked visitor spots - #40-44.
    • An Admissions representative will be present to greet your child.
    • Please do not attend this shadow visit if your child is not feeling in optimum health.
    • Prospective students will attend all eight class periods.
    • The shadow visit concludes at 2:45 p.m. Students will exit Door #1 for pick up.
    Detailed attention is taken when pairing students with an SFHS Student Ambassador. Please note that we are not able to accommodate full day shadow requests, unless it is with an older sibling or Student Ambassador. However, we will work to pair your child with their requested host for 1-2 periods during the day. We appreciate your understanding.
     
    Dress Code:
    St. Francis High School maintains a uniform dress code. Nice casual is the general rule for shadow guests.
    • Please no jeans, t-shirts, sweatpants, sweatshirts, leggings, sleeveless or mid-drift tops.
    Each shadow guest has the option to receive a free lunch. Your child is also welcome to bring a brown-bag lunch.
     
    Shadowing provides prospective students the opportunity to experience our campus, community, and culture. It is our hope that each student feels welcome and gains a better understanding of what it is like to be a Spartan.
