St. Francis of Assisi Parish School identifies message, community, service, and worship as the educational foundation upon which a partnership of home and school is built. Recognizing parents as primary educators, and teachers as facilitators for learning, our students develop within an educational program rooted in Catholic faith that imparts knowledge, values, and life skills according to the individual needs and abilities of each child. Education is a process that transcends the immediate future and with this shared vision, we strive to instill in our students a life-long commitment and societal responsibility to the Christian ideals of peace, justice, equality, and respect for all life.
St. Francis of Assisi Parish School is called to provide a nurturing environment where students can grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, psychologically and physically. Through a dedicated partnership of parish, parents, and educators, we strive to prepare our students to become productive, global citizens of the twenty-first century. Placed within the foundation of our philosophy, we share the vision and common goal of Excellence in Catholic Education.

We start each day with age appropriate prayers of adoration and thanksgiving, to include singing and movement, as we praise God.
Concrete, hands-on activities and experiences are planned according to a calendar of themes and units relevant to the child, which provides meaningful learning. Field trips and special events are also planned to enhance the preschool curriculum.
