Each semester, SFHS invites parents and grandparents to spend the lunch period with their Troubie. This opportunity is a fun and unique way for parents and grandparents to spend quality time together, as well as get a sneak peek into daily life. Parents and Grandparents can bring lunch from off-campus, or enjoy the lunch for purchase from Serra Court Cafe.
St. Francis is known for the over-the-top, crazy competition of Spirit Week. Classes compete against each other in a canned food drive, wacky sports, and decorating the gym. It all leads to a fantastic Homecoming dance at the end of the week.
The Big Sister Program is a fun way for new Troubie Freshman to acclimate to daily life at St. Francis. Generally, 2-4 freshman (little sisters) are paired with a senior student (big sister).
Throughout the semester, big and little sisters attend meetings and activities to build sisterhood and familiarization with our campus.
Students of each grade level have an opportunity to take time away from their busy school life to explore their spirituality, self, and relationships with God and others. All students, regardless of faith background, are strongly encouraged to attend a retreat each year while at SFHS.
Retreat attendance is not considered an absence. Missed school work is modified or excused for students who are on retreat. A fee does apply for most retreats, although SFHS subsidizes the expense. Financial aid is available.
Unique to St. Francis, Switch with a Parent (S.W.A.P.) Day gives parents the opportunity to spend the morning at St. Francis High School in their daughter’s classes. Parents meet their daughters’ teachers and experience the classroom setting, including the daily assignments.
This special day includes Mass and plenty of food, games, costume contests and prizes. Younger siblings are invited to our celebration along with the nearby elementary students.
