Middle School Athletics

St. Francis Middle School offers a comprehensive athletics program with fall, winter, and spring sports seasons. Students in grades 6–8 have the opportunity to participate on teams and compete against other schools throughout the year. While participation is optional, more than 90 percent of students tend to participate in at least one sport each year. Students who are not on a team are enrolled in a physical education class. We are members of the Houston Junior Preparatory Conference (HJPC), which comprises K–8 and K–12 schools from the Houston area. We have won 27 HJPC championships.

  • Boys: Cross Country, Football, Basketball, Soccer, Swimming, Wrestling, Baseball, Lacrosse, Golf, Tennis, and Track & Field.
  • Girls: Cross Country, Field Hockey, Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, Swimming, Softball, Lacrosse, Golf, Tennis, and Track & Field.

Upper School Athletics

Upper School athletics began in the fall of 2018 with our Founding Freshman class. In our first two years, we are competing independently in the following sports: girls volleyball, coed cross country, boys and girls Basketball, coed swimming, coed track & field, and coed golf. Seventy-three percent of Upper School students participated in at least one sport this year. As the Upper School grows, we anticipate adding sports offerings similar to those in our Middle School program.

St. Francis Sports Association (SFSA)

In addition to our physical education program, students in kindergarten through fifth grade have the opportunity to participate in a variety of youth sports through the St. Francis Sports Association, a program of St. Francis Episcopal Church.
