Welcome to
St. Francis

At St. Francis, we meet you where you are and empower you to step forward. Stepping forward means learning to trust yourself and leaning into your ideas. It means boldly taking on intellectual risks and personal challenges, seeking to learn from failure as well as success, always knowing you can rise to the occasion. It also means extending a hand to those around you while stepping up to a deeper and more reflective spirituality.

Courage to explore the unknown.
Ability to learn from challenges and demonstrate resilience. 

A St. Francis student is naturally curious and willing to take chances where they matter most—in a classroom or an art studio, on a playing field or a stage, in an important conversation, or a developing friendship. And we not only celebrate success, but also learn resilience and tenacity through our occasional missteps.

Skills to listen, reflect, and collaborate effectively.
Confidence to lead. 

We believe communication in all forms is vital—whether speaking, writing, listening, or performing. We value collaboration, communication, respect, and empathy. Our students endeavor to understand and be understood.

Experiences that encourage personal growth.
A place where I am valued and value others. 

Academics and intellectual development are at the heart of St. Francis’s mission, and we want every graduate to be fully prepared for greater educational challenges and eventual career pursuits. Students also build strengths as athletes and artists, as friends and citizens, and in their spirits and hearts. Our commitment to wellness, wide-ranging success, and curiosity enhances, balances, and distinguishes more traditional aspects of the St. Francis experience.
