Philosophy & Mission


Saint Francis School’s educational philosophy is based on the premise that every child can succeed if attention is given to his or her learning strengths, as well as his or her learning weaknesses.  Children learn best in an environment that is supportive yet challenging and where reachable expectations have replaced ongoing frustration.

Saint Francis allows each child to realize his or her full learning potential by providing a balanced, well-rounded program that pays careful attention to basic skill development, while at the same time encouraging growth through physical activity, fine arts appreciation, scientific experimentation, and historical discovery.


The mission of Saint Francis School is to provide a college preparatory program to students with diverse academic ability in a structured environment that is challenging and supportive.
