St. Francis Episcopal offers a comprehensive Athletics program at the Middle School level. Students in grades 6-8 have the opportunity to participate on teams and compete against other schools throughout the year. Sport seasons are broken down into fall, winter, and spring. Participation is optional; however, 98% of students participated in at least one sport this year. Students not on a team are enrolled in a Physical Education Class. We are members of the Houston Junior Preparatory Conference (HJPC) which is comprised of K-8 and K-12 schools from the Houston area. We have won 26 HJPC championships.

The Upper School Athletics program opened in the fall of 2018 with our inaugural class of ninth grade students. At the Upper School level, we are competing independently this year in the following sports: Girls Volleyball, Coed Cross Country, Boys and Girls Basketball, Coed Swimming, Coed Track & Field, and Tennis. 94% of Upper School students participated in at least one sport this year.
