Mission Statement and Philosophy

Mission Statement

We are a faculty dedicated to continuing the educational ministry of Jesus. We see ourselves imparting God’s word and mission daily in our respective classrooms by setting Christ-like examples and by living according to the ideals and principles of our patron, Saint Francis.

We strive for excellence in helping each child realize and fulfill his/her God given talents.

We feel as ministers of the Word we must, by example show that we live the WORD.

To accomplish these goals, we at St. Francis Academy demonstrate a caring manner and respect the dignity of all. We work together in a spirit of mutual support as we carry out our mission.

We continually strive to find better ways to serve our students and community and we encourage the students to foster unselfish service to all in particular to the poor in our community and in our world.

Philosophy

Motivated by a strong desire to continue Christ’s Mandate: “Go teach all nations,” we at St. Francis Academy are committed to the pursuit of excellence in the light of Gospel values, enabling all our students to become upright citizens who embrace Catholic values and ethics.
