Deciding where to send your child to school can be a difficult decision. With so many options and programs to choose from in the Raleigh area, making the right decision for your child can seem overwhelming. As you consider your options here are three reasons we think The Franciscan School could very well be the place for your child.

 

Small Class Size

Our class sizes for grades K-8 are intentionally small. We feel giving your child the opportunity for more one on one time with their teacher is a way to develop individual needs while still learning in a classroom environment. Experiential learning is a way our teachers embed the concepts being taught in the classroom. Teachers often find ways to explore how concepts and ideas are brought to life so children have real and tangible takeaways with each lesson. 

 

Community and Service Values

In the spirit of the Franciscan mission, students are introduced early to the concept of community and service. Each day begins with Morning Prayer in the courtyard in which the entire school gathers to pray and give thanks for the day ahead. Each month students and staff participate in service projects that benefit those in the Raleigh and surrounding areas. Learn more about how our students make a difference.

 

Faith based education

Our students are nurtured in a prayerful environment with catholic traditions and Franciscan values. The school works closely with parents, their children’s first teachers, to prepare each child with a foundation of faith and values that will serve them far beyond their time at the school.
