The values of Blessed Father Moreau, Founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, guide how Saint Francis High School prepares students for college, service and leadership. In the spirit of Holy Cross, the campus facilities encourage the education of the whole person—intellectually, artistically, socially, spiritually and physically.
At Saint Francis, students move from classroom to classroom as they would on a college campus. At Holy Cross Hall, students benefit from renovated biology, chemistry and physics labs. The Brother Eamon Shaffer Library houses a computer lab and a web-based catalog system, and Higgins Hall is home to two art studios. Popular places for students to gather include three student centers, located centrally at Moreau Hall, and the quad, which provides picnic tables and abundant space for students to eat, study and spend time together. The school also provides sacred places for students to explore their faith. The Brothers’ Chapel is available for prayer services, and the Saint Joseph Prayer Garden is an inspiring space for reflection.
Campus enhancements are always underway at Saint Francis. Within the last five years, Andre Hall, Almon Family Communications Center and Cassin Technology Center were completed which feature several classrooms as well as two newly upgraded computer labs used for computer programming and graphic art classes. The Angelo Aguiar Athletic Complex, which opened in 2005, has a baseball field with an indoor batting facility and seating that accommodates 800 spectators. The sports complex also has a football field with an all-weather turf, stadium lighting and a seating capacity of 5,000. The Performing Arts Center and Graham Theater was completed in May 2009. The theater has modern sound and stage amenities including a scene shop and fly space, and accommodates audiences of more than 400 people.
Saint Francis High School is a diverse and lively community where students are encouraged to excel in all areas of life, and our expansive campus and modern facilities provide an environment where every student can grow and succeed.
