Arts & Culture

Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, made teaching the arts a priority for every school he founded. Since its founding in 1955, Saint Francis High School has carried on this tradition by offering a comprehensive visual and performing arts curriculum.

Performing Arts


Saint Francis High School is a comprehensive band program boasting Concert, Symphonic, Marching, and Jazz Bands, as well as chamber ensembles and winter percussion. All bands travel every year and participate in a wide variety of competitions, festivals, and community events. Musicians of all skill levels are welcome to join!



The choral program at Saint Francis High School provides students with strong musicianship skills and builds performance technique through our four-year comprehensive program. Choirs at Saint Francis are award-winning, internationally acclaimed groups for both sacred and secular music. Musicians of all levels are invited to join!



Dancers of all levels are invited to participate in the dance program. The dance curriculum encompasses instruction in technique as well as historical studies for various dance styles, including ballet, jazz and modern dance.


Students in the drama program explore all aspects of the theater, from performance to technical crew. Many Saint Francis alumni have gone on to pursue successful professional careers in television and theater.


Visual Arts

“Art is a way to make contact with your soul. It is important to find that space and time for reverie and total absorption.”

-Sylvan Adams, art teacher

Fine Arts & Digital Arts

Our visual arts program offers a variety of classes that engage our students and spark their desire to connect with the world as independent thinkers. In addition to exploring the principles of design, students can also express themselves creatively with technology and learn real-world skills, such as storytelling, branding, videography, photography and product design.
