Welcome to The Franciscan School!

Dear Families,

Thank you for your interest in The Franciscan School. We are delighted that you are considering our school for your child. We understand that choosing a school for your child’s education is a very important decision in both your child’s and family’s life. We encourage you to explore our website and invite you to get to know us by scheduling a time to come and visit us.

Founded in 2000, we are a part of the beautiful 35-acre campus of the Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi. We partner with parents to pass on Christian values to form disciples of Jesus Christ. The school is a ministry of the parish and the 800+ year old Franciscan Tradition.

TFS is a place where students participate in a challenging curriculum with enrichment opportunities. Students celebrate their faith every day at school in a safe, nurturing environment. They practice social justice teachings through many service opportunities as they seek to become life-long learners and leaders who will improve the world. Most of all, our students are surrounded by teachers who care deeply about them and love teaching them.

We want to meet you and invite you to join our Franciscan School community, a place where you make friends for life! Tuition assistance is available for families to apply for and we are participants in the NC Opportunity Scholarship and Disabilities Grant Programs. We offer individual tours for families and shadow dates for students. These are all excellent ways to get to know us better, ask questions and see why The Franciscan School is such a special place.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to a Franciscan School education. You can contact me directly at 919.534.4837, ext. 469 or at to answer any questions, schedule a tour, or set up a shadow date for your child.
