The Franciscan School strives to create a faith-filled environment that draws each member of this community closer to Christ.
Each day begins with Morning Prayer in the Courtyard. The entire school community participates in Gospel Share, Morning Praise, and weekly all-community liturgy at the St. Francis of Assisi Church, and student-led liturgies on feast days.
Early Morning Care & After School Program
Due to staffing limitations, Bridges is at capacity and no longer accepting accepting registrations.
The Bridges Program provides the opportunity to extend learning and fun to the beginning and end of each school day. We offer homework assistance, inside & outside play, arts & crafts. Early Morning Care begins at 7:00 AM and the After School Program ends at 6:00 PM. Full and part time options are available for both.
Early Morning Care is available from 7:00-7:40 AM Monday through Friday for grades K-8 in Jacoba Hall. In the event of a school delay, Early Morning Care will also be delayed.
The After School Program operates Monday-Friday between the hours of 2:40 and 6:00 PM. Bridges is open on select early release and teacher workdays, but does not operate on holidays.
If school is dismissed or canceled due to inclement weather, we will also cancel Bridges for the day.
