St. Francis Catholic High School is proud to announce that flag football will be added to our champion athletics program this fall after the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) approved girls’ flag football as a sanctioned sport.
It’s been a week filled with celebrations for the Class of ‘23! From Senior Sunset to reflecting on the advice they would give their Freshman self, to the traditional and beautiful baccalaureate mass and graduation ceremonies. We wish our Maries the best as they chart a new path. May it always bring you back to St. Francis. Don’t miss all the amazing moments of the week captured and shared on our social channels this week @sfhs.Sacramento and @sfhs_troubies.
This week’s St. Francis Stories spotlight is the graduating duo of Lauren and Louise Morr and how they found inspiration serving at a day camp for the children of refugee families in the Sacramento area starting in 2019. This summer will be their fifth one helping at the camp. Oh! They also happen to be great lacrosse players and will be attending UCLA in the fall. Lauren and Louise truly emulate the four pillars of St. Francis: Faith, Excellence, Leadership, Service.
As the excitement of graduation looms, so does the participation in collegiate sports for so many of our Troubies. We had 11 student athletes commit to their sport and college in the fall. Recently, seven more announced their intent during the spring National Letter of Intent and College Commitment celebration. All the details can be found HERE.
The gifts each St. Francis student possess are vast and can often go unrecognized, not for lack of caring or interest, but simply because there’s so much our students do outside of school time and walls. For example, participating in women’s youth bobsledding probably isn’t something one would equate with Sacramento or St. Francis. But sophomore Emily Bradley is doing just that! She recently returned from Austria and is now ranked #2 in the world! She appeared on Good Day Sacramento and is this week’s St. Francis Stories feature.
Competition often inspires great stories and there’s certainly no shortage of competition this spring from our Troubadours! If you haven’t logged on to gotroubies.com lately or follow @SFHS.Athletics on social (HINT: some great moments are shared here), you’re missing out! It’s hard to choose just one headline to highlight: Troubies stun defending league, section champs or Miles, Hodge lead comeback in epic LAX battle.
Each young woman at St. Francis is an individual, on her own journey, with her own talents, interests and aspirations. Together, WE are ST. FRANCIS ❤️
During Saturday’s 40th annual auction, we debuted this very special video, starring many of our Troubies. It was a labor of love inspired by our president, and realized by our digital media manager and friends at Univision. We want to make sure everyone sees it and feels free to share it far and wide. It’s the perfect installment for this week’s St. Francis Stories feature.
The St. Francis visual and performing arts department is a haven for fantastic stories about St. Francis. We encourage you to follow @arts.sfhs on Facebook.
Today we share news about our show choir in our St. Francis Stories feature. Last weekend they headed back to Anaheim for the first time in four years to perform at Disneyland’s California Adventure. Right now, we have pre-trip photos and rehearsal videos posted. We’ll share images from Disneyland as soon as we can! What a great opportunity for our show choir students.
St. Francis Catholic High School is proud to announce and welcome Dr. Felicia Haecker as its new diversity coordinator. Haecker will assume her new role on Tuesday, February 28. We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Haecker to the St. Francis community.
St. Francis High School is excited to announce a new partnership with the Los Rios Community College District to provide select college courses to our students starting this fall. This is the first-of-its-kind partnership for private high schools in the greater Sacramento area.
