Franciscan friars


Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Franciscan Catholic school, where we educate children from preschool through 8th grade. The vision we have of our school is as an educational center where Gospel values are learned, embraced and integrated by all the members. The Catholic School will be a center for life long learning which challenges and empowers faculty to assess the present and design the future. The Catholic School will create an integrated curriculum that accommodates the diversity of learners in a global society. I would encourage you to visit the links above to get to know our school. We would also be delighted to receive you for a tour of our fine facility.

—Dr. Tricia Barber, Principal
