We, the community of St. Francis of Assisi, work hard to enrich the spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical well-being of our students. We look to St. Francis as a model of humility, joy, and respect for all of God's creations. We aim to create a respectful environment where all students feel safe and accepted. We recognize and foster each persons' gifts thereby supporting their ability to make positive contributions to their school and society.
WORKING TOWARDS OUR MISSION
The goal of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School is to empower the students to develop spiritually, academically, socially and physically so that they can discover who they are and what they can become. Students will develop a sense of self-worth and confidence both independently and in their interactions with others. Through a focus on the Catholic Graduate Expectations students will discover they are all created in the image of God and will be encouraged to live a life of love.
The learning environment at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School encourages students to be life long active, enthusiastic, and self-directed problem solvers in a collaborative community of learners. It promotes co-operation among all members of the school community in creating compassionate, supportive programs which respect the special learning needs and abilities of all students. Students are encouraged to take risks in their learning and persevere when faced with a challenge in their learning.
We encourage the development of environmentally conscious students with an understanding of community and global issues. Our students will know the Catholic virtues and gain an understanding of how to live these virtues.
We believe in excellence in Catholic Education which encompasses more than high levels of student achievement. It is excellence which encourages idealism and values love. It is true excellence which rejoices in the uniqueness of each member of the school community.
At St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, we promote responsibility, respect, cooperation and academic excellence in a safe learning and teaching environment, consistent with the teachings of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We are created in the image of God and are, therefore, called to make the world a better place in which to live.
