 Our Mission

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.

Admissions Policy

In the administration of our student admissions, staff and faculty employment, or educational programs or policies, The Franciscan School does not discriminate on the basis of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, religious background or gender. We welcome families of all faiths who are seeking an education in a Catholic environment. We are strengthened by our diversity.
