President's Welcome


Welcome to Saint Francis High School. A nationally recognized School of Excellence, Saint Francis imparts Christian values, fosters academic achievement and promotes participation in co-curricular activities, athletics and the arts. We are a Catholic and Holy Cross community where educators, students and parents, work in unison to create a rich learning environment.

Value-based learning is at the heart of our mission and reinforces our annual Holy Cross themes of hope, integrity, compassion and respect. Our liturgies, community service programs and retreats encourage and nurture the spiritual growth of every student.

Academic challenge and preparation for learning at the university level form the centerpiece of our educational philosophy. We are committed to our students’ scholastic success and welcome frequent communication between students, teachers, academic advisors and parents. We recognize that course scheduling and college counseling require a collaborative effort.

Personal growth and leadership are enhanced through our incredible athletic, activity and visual and performing arts programs. Student participation in co-curricular activities develops skills that will serve them in college and throughout life.

Saint Francis High School is an exceptional institution where educators and parents work together, share values and promote student growth. We set the standard by which others measure their success.
