Welcome to Saint Francis!
We hope that you will take a few minutes to explore our website to get a sense of what it means to be part of our Holy Cross community. A school rich in tradition and legacy, we have been educating students in the Holy Cross tradition for more than 60 years. If you are a student with broad interests, high expectations, great school spirit and dreams to “stand tall,” you will want to consider Saint Francis High School as a great choice for your high school experience.
At Saint Francis High School, our goal is to provide the finest college preparatory education in an inclusive Catholic, Holy Cross family environment. Our students are exposed to an abundance of possibilities, from the breadth of our academic and activity programs to the spiritual opportunities for service and immersion in Campus Ministry. However, what makes our school unique is our Holy Cross mission of creating “family” on campus. Our students come to us from all over the Bay Area, but when they get here, they are immediately welcomed into our family and encouraged to find their unique place at our school. Saint Francis is a place where you can feel at home, a place where you have a chance to be yourself and to explore your dreams.
Each day at Saint Francis amazing and wonderful things happen in the classroom and around the campus. We are blessed with gifted and motivated students who daily amaze us with their accomplishments. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our students is the other part of our family, our faculty and staff, who inspire and encourage our students to follow their dreams. Whether in the classroom, on the athletic fields, directing the arts programs or moderating our clubs, our teachers challenge our students to do their best and support them in their dreams.
We invite you to visit our campus and experience firsthand the unique promise of a Holy Cross education – a school that blends tradition with innovation in pursuit of the very best education for our students.
