    Our daughters began at St. Francis of Assisi in 3rd and 6th grade. Both made the transition very well. Initially, I was welcomed by a fellow, seasoned SFA parent who served as a mentor and someone I could reach out to when I had questions. This was such a blessing to me! Providing our children a Catholic faith filled education was a high priority for us. We were drawn to the smaller class sizes and a church and school community with Catholic values. We’ve been so pleased with the strong academics, inclusiveness, staff, teachers, coaches and parent involvement. Not only are there numerous clubs, sports, and extracurricular activities; SFA teaches and encourages our children to give back through service to the underprivileged. It is a loving, safe and positive Christian learning environment that truly puts our kids first! This school truly embodies Saint Francis of Assisi’s quote “For it is in giving that we receive”.

    My daughter has just begun her 6th grade at SFA (we've been here since Pre-K), and it's definitely a second home. It's a tight-knit community where all the teachers and staff know her (and me) by name. The academics provide a great range, with gifted children benefiting from the Enrichment program while those in need of additional help have Enhance and PLUS programs. There's an emphasis on STEM and the usage of technology in the classroom. There's tons of extracurricular activities to choose from, from dance/gymnastics, choir, band, theater, sports, Scouts, robotics, Animal Rescue Club... The ways for your children to become involved are so varied! And they always welcome parents in the school with lots of ways for us to be involved as well. I really couldn't ask for anything else!
    We are new to SFA but so far we are LOVING it! The staff are so helpful in every way imaginable. Most of the teachers have been here for 13 + yrs. and always have a smile on their faces and eager to help your child if they are struggling.

    After coming from SCS I can Say that is has been the biggest relief for us knowing our child is in an environment that is truly focused on nurturing your child for life success.

    There is also a culture of inclusion, friendliness and respect for others that is ingrained in everyone at the school. The feeling of being welcomed began from the moment we walked in the school all the way to children actively reaching out to our son to introduce him to classmates he may not know yet.

    Can’t say enough positive things about this place. Only wish we made the switch sooner.
