Not sure about who we are, or what we do?

We are truly “the School of Thought” – a diverse community that emphasizes intellectual achievement in an atmosphere of individual acceptance; a PS – 12th grade school that is college-preparatory in the truest sense of the word. We respect children as curious scientists and mathematicians, as creative writers and artists, and as changemakers for a more just and equitable world.

 To cultivate a joyful, compassionate, intellectual community that celebrates individuality and inspires independent thinking for life.

St. Francis School is the regional center of progressive learning where students grow into mindful, informed young adults.

Individuality, Inclusivity, Community, Thought, Openness, Expression, Curiosity
