Mission Statement

St. Francis High School provides a Catholic college preparatory education in the
Capuchin Franciscan tradition of love and discipline.

We enrich the mind and the heart through the teachings of
Jesus Christ and Francis of Assisi.

We strengthen the Franciscan values of respect for others
and self through humility and service to the poor.

We create a brotherhood for young men of diverse backgrounds.

We envision a Franciscan education not as an end in itself,
but as a means of forging men of virtue.
