tfs-academics5For more than 20 years, The Franciscan School has built a reputation of academic excellence, providing a rigorous, top-notch education that develops students into lifelong learners and leaders. Our highly qualified, passionate faculty and staff strive to challenge and encourage each student – mindfully meeting them where they are and helping them take the next steps in their academic development. Our academic curriculum, which aligns with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, National Standards and Diocesan objectives and values, provides a strong foundation for the future – and through diverse course offerings, technology-enhanced classrooms and fun, experiential learning activities, we aim to bring the concepts taught within the classroom walls to life. Though we’ve grown into one of the largest Catholic schools on the East Coast, we intentionally keep our classes small to ensure every child receives the individual attention they deserve. Recognized by the Department of Education as one of North Carolina’s Blue Ribbon Schools, we like to think we’re doing something right.
