A private Episcopal school for primary through high school students in Houston, Texas


Primary School

Looking for a welcoming environment where your child will not only learn and grow, but also flourish? The first three years of a child’s life are critical for the development of language, attention span, socialization, and problem-solving skills. In our Primary School, preschoolers discover a learning laboratory based on a Reggio-inspired, project-based approach. Here, they enjoy a hands-on environment that nurtures them cognitively, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually—all while building a solid academic foundation for future learning.

A Positive Path for Learning

At St. Francis, we offer an enriched preschool curriculum that is planned, implemented, and continually revised by degreed professionals who have the knowledge and skills to create an excellent, developmentally appropriate program.

Through constructive play, the Primary School provides our preschoolers with opportunities for, positive social and emotional interaction in a nurturing environment. We are focused on developing a community of respect and compassion where children can learn to express creatively, make decisions, safely take risks, cultivate reason and logical thinking, and develop through increased responsibility and independence.
