St. Francis High School is thrilled to share the following administrative staffing updates, effective July 1, 2024.
Maureen Isphording, who has served as our Director of Admissions for the past 8 years, will now serve SFHS as Assistant Principal of Student Life. In partnership with the principal, this role focuses on the management of the school’s co-curricular programs and the overall student experience outside of the classroom. We are deeply grateful for Maureen’s gifts and look forward to seeing her continue to excel at SFHS!
Joining the SFHS family as our new Director of Admissions is Patrick Jacobsen. Patrick is a motivational leader who enjoys cultivating long-lasting relationships with students and staff. He comes to us from Fenwick High School in Oak Park where he was Director of Admissions (since June 2021) and school counselor (since July 2017). He previously served in admissions and was a baseball coach at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. Saint Mary's is also where he earned his bachelor’s degree in secondary education and master’s degree in educational leadership. Welcome to SFHS, Patrick!
