Overview

Student-Athlete Handbook

St. Francis Athletics is committed to the total education of young women by providing a comprehensive, fair and equitable program for the school community in a caring, supportive environment.  The athletic program strives to enrich the mental, physical and moral development of all students by integrating athletics in the school’s education program.  The athletic program strives for excellence with these primary goals as our focus.  Championships, individual recognition and the ability to compete are desirable outgrowths of an educationally sound sports program but are secondary to the primary objectives of the athletic program.

St. Francis High School does not recruit students for its athletic program, nor does it offer athletic scholarships to students. All athletes will adhere to the general attendance, conduct, academic standards, and Christian Service hour requirements in order to remain in good standing for their specific team.
