Upper School (Opening Fall 2018)
The St. Francis Upper School learning environment will promote balance and self-awareness while growing students who are faithful, upstanding citizens and people for others. Programs will be intentionally structured to connect the academic, social, and spiritual experiences of each student. Through interdisciplinary learning and design thinking, ninth graders will 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.
Push the Boundaries of What’s Possible
At St. Francis, your student will never be a number or get lost in the crowd. Our faculty promotes empowerment, encourages leadership, and supports students in thinking about what’s possible—helping them discover and nurture their unique talents and interests.
Drawing from time-honored tradition, St. Francis offers dynamic learning opportunities to ensure young scholars of different faiths, experiences, and backgrounds are encouraged to push the boundaries of what’s possible.
Education for Learning – And Living

In the classroom, St. Francis students will enjoy a rigorous curriculum taught by distinguished faculty who focus on experiential learning, mastery of skill, and character development in a faith-based setting.
