Founded in 2000, The Franciscan School is a fully accredited K-8 Catholic School with an enrollment of 700 students in 2015-16. 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.
Inspired by our patron Francis of Assisi, we seek to proclaim the reign of God by growing in Holiness through our experience of Christ in word, sacrament and one another, offering Hope to those who hunger for human dignity, and extending Hospitality to all.
Franciscan School’s Statement of Values
We are a Catholic and Franciscan community walking together as lifelong learners who strive to live and love as Jesus did.
Reflecting the unique charism of our patron, Saint Francis of Assisi, The Franciscan School is dedicated to an education that fosters a Christ-centered way of living and celebrates the building of the Kingdom of God on Earth.
We believe that community is at the heart of Franciscan education and strive to create a prayerful environment alive with Catholic traditions and Christian values where self-discipline, sensitivity, respect and personal responsibility are taught and practiced.
We believe that every child has the potential to achieve something wonderful and that our family centered faith formation encourages our community to share their time, talent, and treasure and recognize the value and significance of their gifts in God’s plan for the world.
We believe teaching is a ministry and our faculty and staff reflect this attitude. Our educators share their diverse talents, encourage growth, and recognize that relationships with students and families go far beyond the role of formal education.
We provide an academic curriculum that reflects excellence in all its parts, allows for creative expression, and prepares our children to live in the technological world.
We instill a love of learning, a desire to look for truth with a humble spirit, and a willingness to consider reality from many perspectives while evaluating it with a sense of justice and proportion.
