TFS at a Glance


History

Founded in 2000, The Franciscan School is a fully accredited K-8 Catholic School of over 660 students in 2013-14.   The school was fully sized in the fall of 2008 with the addition of the third section of 8th Grade.  Reflecting the unique charism of our patron, St. Francis of Assisi, TFS is dedicated to an education that fosters a Christ-centered way of living and celebrates the building of the Kingdom of God on Earth.

Student Success
 
We believe that every child at The Franciscan School has the potential to achieve something wonderful and that our family-centered faith formation encourages all in our community to share their time, talent and treasure, and to recognize the value and significance of their gifts in God’s plan for the world.
 
We send forth children knowledgeable of self, rooted in faith, educated in mind, compassionate in heart, and deeply responsive in service to others, especially the poor and the oppressed of our world.
