Why St. Francis?
For 60 years, St. Francis Episcopal Day School has been nurturing children from 18 months to eighth grade in an environment that emphasizes both scholastic excellence and emotional growth. The school combines rigorous academics and thoughtful religious instruction with competitive athletics, superb fine arts, advanced technological instruction, and compassionate service programs to create a truly inspired education.
St. Francis’ offerings are guided by the school’s four cornerstones—faith, scholarship, courage, and honor—and students are encouraged to develop moral integrity and character, unique intellectual and physical capacities, an appreciation for and ability to engage in creative expression, and a respect for all people and for our diverse society.
Because children’s educational needs grow and change throughout their elementary and middle school years, St. Francis’ award-winning faculty members carefully craft each child’s classroom and curricular experience to meet individual learning needs and styles. Students are equipped to embrace an uncertain future through curriculum and programs that emphasize problem solving, logic, and critical thinking. They also learn how to be “people for others,” incorporating passion for service and compassion for others into every aspect of their lives.
St. Francis graduates are highly sought-after by area private and magnet high schools due to their solid academic preparation, extensive leadership training, and reputation for character and moral excellence. In fact, 98 percent of our graduates are accepted into their college-preparatory high school of choice.
