Upper School FAQs
Will upper school students attend chapel and receive religious instruction?
Chapel services are an important aspect of a St. Francis education, and all students attend chapel regularly. Religion classes are also required for all students throughout Upper School.
What does the student-to-teacher ratio look like?
The student–to–teacher ratio is ultimately determined by the type of course; however, for the first few years, we will intentionally keep our class sizes small.

Doors to our first ninth-grade class opened fall 2018. We will add an additional grade each subsequent school year. Tenth grade will be added in fall 2019, eleventh grade in fall 2020, and twelfth grade in fall 2021.
Is St. Francis Upper School program accredited?
