Many of our students say Saint Francis has transformed them. Not only do they receive a solid foundation for college, they leave high school knowing they are ready for the future. After four years, students are more open to new experiences and find that they have a better idea of who they are.

As our students become scholars, humanitarians, scientists, artists and more, they carry with them the Catholic, Holy Cross mission and the life lessons they learned during their time at Saint Francis. Our graduates are mature young adults who serve the world, making a difference wherever they are.
