Saint Francis of Assisi Mission Statement

We are a Catholic community of faith striving to follow Jesus, pledging each day to do our best by imitating St. Francis of Assisi as “instruments of peace.” Our goal is to maintain a safe and healthy environment and to be academically prepared for this technological age.

About Saint Francis of Assisi School

Saint Francis of Assisi School is a Catholic elementary parish school that encompasses grades PreK-8. We are a community of faith, striving to follow Jesus through a collaborative effort with school, home, and parish. We come together from local communities to develop and nurture a student body of varying talents, abilities and unique gifts.

The goal of St. Francis of Assisi School is to instill in the heart of each child: knowledge, love of God, acceptance of self, and respect for others. With the good example and cooperation of their parents, we hope to prepare our students for the life Christ came to give, by imitating Saint Francis of Assisi as “instruments of peace.”

As educators, our goal is to graduate students who have strong moral standards and academic skills, who will become good citizens and able members of society. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students.

Opportunities are continuously provided for them to extend and develop their spiritual lives through formal and informal faith instruction. Our family comes together for prayerful celebration in monthly liturgies prepared by each grade.
