Philosophy of SFHS


The philosophy of St. Francis Catholic High School is based on a belief in God and is committed to the values of our Catholic faith.

  • We commit ourselves to the task of educating young women to live full, responsible, and meaningful lives, strengthened through the curricula and experiences unique to a Catholic school and unique to St. Francis High School.
  • We serve the needs of all our students through a varied and comprehensive college preparatory curriculum.
  • We prepare all students for higher education, career opportunities, life-time vocation choices, artistic development, and athletic proficiency. In imitation of our patron, Saint Francis of Assisi, we help students to develop a love for God’s creations, and to be of service to others.
  • We believe that each student can be a force for “peace and goodness” throughout the world. Thus, young women graduating from St. Francis High School have been challenged to reach their full potential: spiritually, intellectually, artistically, physically, and socially.
