At the heart of that education are our four pillars:

List of 4 items.

  • Spirituality

    We demonstrate our Catholic faith in daily life and encourage our students to pursue spiritual growth.

    In the spirit of St. Francis de Sales, we strive "to be who we are and to be that well."
  • Scholarship

    Through a culture committed to academic excellence, we build a solid foundation that sustains a lifelong love of learning.

    Our challenging curriculum encourages the development of the whole person.
  • Service

    St. Francis of Assisi inspires us to see the good in all creation and to value every person as a gift from the Creator.

    We foster a dedication to love, serve, and care for others in our communities, both locally and globally.
  • Sisterhood

    We are dedicated to the education of young women and support each in becoming all that God created her to be.

    By learning to work together and encourage each other, our students acquire a gentle strength that transforms them into strong leaders.
Spirituality. Scholarship. Service. Sisterhood.
