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.
Shadowing gives you the opportunity to experience the St. Francis High School community and life as a Spartan. Walk our campus, hear us pray together, visit classes, have lunch, and leave with a better understanding of the Franciscan spirit and enthusiasm at SFHS. Our goal is for you to see the advantage of a St. Francis High School education. We look forward to you spending the day with us!
