Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion


Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The St. Francis Racial Reconciliation Plan is a comprehensive course of action, created in consultation with our families, students, diocese and outside experts, that confronts racism in our school community and touches every corner of campus.  

Its primary focus is to celebrate the diversity within our community; build the skills of our staff and faculty so the benefits of the community are experienced equitably; and to ultimately ensure that all of our students and families feel a sense of belonging and inclusion.
