The St. Francis Upper School learning environment promotes balance and self-awareness while growing students who are faithful, upstanding citizens and people for others. Programs are intentionally structured to connect the academic, social, and spiritual experiences of each student. Through interdisciplinary learning and design thinking, ninth graders shape their learning and leadership experiences in preparation for further study in grades 10–12. By graduation, a St. Francis education will foster an intense intellectual curiosity, a deep affinity for others, and a desire to gain an understanding beyond the student’s own lived experience.
