The mission of St. Francis Central Catholic School is the lifelong, holistic formation of each person according to the Good News of Jesus Christ through faith community experience, academic excellence, and quality religious education. In collaboration as Christians, we commit ourselves “to serve; not to be served.”
St. Francis Central Catholic School exists for the purposes of communicating the “Good News”, for building a faith community, and for assisting parents in fulfilling their responsibility to educate children in accordance with Catholic tradition. We believe that parents are their children’s primary educators. St. Francis Central Catholic School strives for excellence and provides meaningful teaching-learning experiences so that students can grow spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally in a Christian atmosphere animated by the Gospel values of community, love, faith, hope, truth, reconciliation, courage, justice, and service. We believe that every child is God’s unique creation, meriting respect and dignity. Each student has the freedom and responsibility to achieve goals, personal fulfillment, self-esteem, self-discipline, and self-direction.
Christ is the foundation for all of our activities, and His message is the basis of truth, goodness, and life. God’s message and love permeate school curriculum allowing each student to realize full potentials as a child in God’s Kingdom. St. Francis Central Catholic School strives to provide a program enabling students to develop as Christians, to achieve academically, and to live productive lives.
