Important Information Regarding Holy Bowl

Dear Families:

Sacramento’s family of Catholic high schools is thrilled to be back welcoming our entire community for the 51st Holy Bowl this Saturday, September 10, 2022, at Hughes Stadium. This annual event is a fine tradition of good-spirited rivalry and is a chance for us to showcase our athletic accomplishments and enormous school spirit and pride. Students who attended years of grammar school together have an opportunity to catch up and socialize, and this is an opportunity to promote Catholic education to the broader Sacramento community.


Revised practice/training schedules for Athletes
All fall teams and spring sports holding fall workouts will have revised practice/training schedules this weekend.

Due to excessive heat over the weekend, all fall teams and spring sports holding fall workouts will have revised practice/training schedules. Parents and students should keep close watch for emails from FinalForms for updates on modified and canceled workouts.


Share Your Thoughts and Insights With Us

In our continuing efforts always to be elevating and optimizing the St. Francis High School experience, we are seeking the participation of volunteers who are willing to share their thoughts and insights, here on campus, during an evening later in September.

Specifically, we are seeking parents and alumnae to join us for an hour of contributing to a friendly, free-flowing discussion. If you are interested in being involved, please complete this form.

President’s Welcome

Dr. Fadia Desmond

For more than 80 years St. Francis Catholic High School has been a school for girls, serving young women and their families across the greater Sacramento region and beyond.  All-girls education is timeless.  There’s no need to look any further than our very own St. Francis alumnae to understand why a St. Francis education is a transformative experience that helps young women realize their confidence, agency and sense of self.
