Mission & Philosophy

The mission of St. Francis of Assisi School is to educate the whole person within a Christ-centered, Catholic community that fosters an active faith, promotes academic growth, and empowers all students to think critically, act with purpose, advocate for justice, and serve with compassion. 

The St. Francis of Assisi School community is dedicated to providing a Christ-centered education that empowers students to reach their full potential- spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and morally. We prepare students to be responsible citizens committed to integrity, justice, and service to others. The Christian morals and intellectual foundation we provide enable our students to respond to God's call with their whole hearts, inspiring them to be compassionate and productive people who contribute to a just and equitable global society.
