Religious Instruction

Faith is a cornerstone of the St. Francis experience. For Pre-Primary through eighth-grade students, religious and spiritual formation is incorporated integrally into our curriculum. Through study, discussion, and interaction, students are encouraged to internalize values and develop their own unique character with the ultimate goal of living Godly lives and being of service to others. These are just a few of the ways we embrace our faith as a community:

  • Students worship together at chapel twice a week. Parents and grandparents are always welcome!
  • Lower and Middle School students celebrate Holy Eucharist monthly.
  • The senior chaplain organizes worship services and is available to school families as a pastor and friend.
  • Weekly religion classes are part of the curriculum at every grade level.
  • Primary and Lower School student birthdays are recognized during chapel.
  • Fourth graders bring their family pets to school to celebrate the Blessing of the Animals each fall on the Feast Day of St. Francis. Primary School students bring their stuffed animals for a blessing as well.
  • In early October, our community joins together at a Sunday morning St. Francis Episcopal Church service in observance of Episcopal Schools Celebration.
