Upper School Admissions (Grades 9–11*)

St. Francis Episcopal Upper School opened its doors in the fall of 2018 to a small but mighty group of freshmen students embarking on what would become an exciting educational journey. The Upper School experience is student-centered, balanced, relevant, connected to the real world, and offers endless opportunities. All students are leaders, athletes, performers, and are engaged in their education. Students receive unparalleled personal attention from our high-caliber faculty, learning in a close-knit community that exemplifies what it means to be part of a school family. The Upper School’s inaugural class will graduate in 2022, coinciding with the school’s 70-year anniversary. 
Come explore the St. Francis Way for yourself!


*St. Francis Episcopal School does not accept applications for grade 12.
