Student Life

Experience SFHS

Come. Walk our hallways. You will feel the energy. Talk with our students. You will feel their passion. Meet our teachers, coaches, and staff. You will feel their dedication. Take time to experience St. Francis High School, because young people thrive here.

The St. Francis High School experience is unlike any other.

Here, we balance academic excellence with a warm, dynamic environment where people know your name and want to help one another. The size of our high school is ideal, encouraging students to engage academically and to lead through participation. We respect that young men and women learn in many ways. And we cultivate character as well as classroom success.

Challenging Young Men and Women and Promoting Critical Thinking.

St. Francis High School challenges young men and women and promotes critical thinking. Our hallmark is threefold: foundational core curriculum, honors and college-level Advanced Placement classes, and academic electives for college and career focus. We serve approximately 730 students of various academic abilities, national origins, and socioeconomic and religious backgrounds.

Rooted in Roman Catholic Tradition.

Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition and the charisms of St. Francis of Assisi, we are committed to helping students understand who they are as young Catholic men and women. We offer Communion daily, pray together in class, celebrate mass, and extend ourselves through retreats, campus ministry, and service. In fact, each St. Francis High School student completes 60 hours of Christian service, as we strive to build habits of serving those in need and pursuing spiritual growth and truth.

Our St. Francis High School Graduates.

St. Francis High School graduates well-rounded, socially responsible young adults. Academically focused and confident, they earn placement at excellent colleges and universities.

This is St. Francis High School.

This is the humble transformation that unfolds when you leave the bustle of Roosevelt Road and soak in the spirit of our school, the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, our patron. Experience St. Francis High School. You can thrive here!
