One of the easiest ways to enjoy St. Francis Stories is to listen to one of our podcasts.  Did you know we have our very own Student Podcast Network? SFHS students host, interview, and edit a variety of shows covering topics across the board.

St. Francis Stories
St. Francis is featured on KFBK's Building a Better Sacramento segment

We’re launching a new feature in the Principal’s Newsletter called St. Francis Stories.

There are a lot of wonderful things happening on and around the St. Francis campus. We realize not everyone engages on social media (but we hope you follow us), watches local broadcasts or listens to the radio, so our hope is to make St. Francis stories as easily accessible as possible!

Catholic Schools Outperform

Data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) was recently released and we are proud to share that Catholic schools came out on top. When compared to their public school counterparts across the nation, Catholic school students’ average scores remained 15 points higher than the average scores of their 8th grade peers. Although the data looked at standardized testing for grades 4 through 8, it has implications for Catholic secondary education as well.
