About St. Francis Episcopal School
At St. Francis Episcopal School, we educate boys and girls from Pre-Primary through eleventh grade. In their time here, children advance through critical stages in the development of language, attention span, social skills, and problem-solving capabilities. They build study habits, self-discipline, and strengths in abstract thinking. They internalize values that will always stay with them and graduate as poised, confident young leaders.
We see the chance to guide children through these important years as a remarkable educational opportunity, and we apply best practices for engaging them during each phase of their growth. We offer an innovative, research-based curriculum; nationally acclaimed faculty; small classes; and a remarkable degree of personal attention.
We love our work and the children we teach, and we find that this spirit inspires a true love of learning in our students.
