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

    Shadow a Spartan!
     
    Get a glimpse of St. Francis High School by attending a Shadow Experience. Students in grades 7-11 who are interested in finding out more about St. Francis High School are invited to experience life on campus as a Spartan. Visiting students will attend an admissions presentation and then walk the halls with an SFHS ambassador; stepping into their shoes, walking their schedule and learning about the exceptional curriculum and co-curricular activities.   
     
    Shadowing provides prospective students the opportunity to experience the campus and culture first-hand. It is our hope that each student feels welcome and gains a better sense of what it is like to be a Spartan.
