Mission, Philosophy & Vision



St. Francis de Sales, a Catholic K through 8 School, develops and educates the whole child to be:

Active in Catholic Faith, Academically Prepared, Accepting of Others, Accountable for All Actions, and and Articulate Communicator.




Recognizing the parent as the primary educator of their children, the community of St. Francis de Sales is dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing, and inclusive learning environment. Our educational experience is based on the teachings of the Catholic Church and the examples set by our founders, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM).  Students are educated to become respectful, successful, lifelong learners who are motivated by our student learning expectations.

St. Francis de Sales sustains and supports faith-based learning through character development, emerging technologies, innovation, and differentiated instruction. St. Francis de Sales inspires emotional, academic, and spiritual growth while instilling integrity and global awareness in its graduates.



St. Francis de Sales aspires to be an innovative leader in developing and implementing a quality Catholic education with a commitment of service to God and others.
