Dear Friends of St. Francis,
Are You Looking for a School to Love?
"When I joined St. Francis as the head of Middle School in 2011, I was looking for a different kind of school—a place where students were more than just the sum of their test scores or athletics stats, more than just “bright” or “talented.” I was looking for a school that recognized and nurtured gifts of the heart, mind, and body. I found this and more at St. Francis!
I love St. Francis. I love how we encourage students to discover and pursue their passions. I love the way we empower teachers to reach beyond the facts and offer inspiration. And I love that we treat faith as more than just something that happens on Sunday mornings, but rather as something that permeates and guides every aspect of life. Every time I visit classrooms and see teachers helping students discover themselves and reimagine the world around them … every time I walk down these halls and see joyful, flourishing students … and every time I witness an act of kindness on this campus that reflects our school mission, I’m reminded once again what a special place this is.
Here, your children will flourish in a safe place; be led by passionate, lifelong learners; develop creativity; embrace excellence; discover their true gifts; and develop a genuine heart for service. We are growing people with heart, people of action, and people for others. And this loving environment extends beyond our students to their families. I think you’ll love it here, too.
My door is always open, and I can’t wait to meet you. Welcome to St. Francis!
Stephen M. Lovejoy, MEd
Head of School
