Principal's Welcome

Dear St. Francis Families and Friends,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 St. Francis High School – Salesian College Preparatory online home. As President/Principal, I'm thrilled to continue the journey with one of the state's top private, Catholic, Salesian high schools.

Our vision is to prepare students for university with Catholic, Salesian values. Named after St. Francis of Assisi, our spirit is inspired by St. John Bosco, emphasizing good Christian and global citizen values.

Key features include a 12:1 teacher-to-student ratio, average class size of 20, and personalized counseling services by Ms. Patricia Gutierrez (College and Career) and Mr. Vernon Calhoun (Struggling students and/or students with IEP/ISP/504 plans).

We focus on 21st century durable skills and mentor students to excel academically, athletically, artistically, and in service, leadership, and faith development. We are truly the Home of Scholars and Champions! Our diverse community includes students from local and international regions.

In closing, let us not forget the message of Pope Francis: “Dear Young People, do not bury your talents – the gifts God has given you! Do not be afraid to dream of great things!” We are here to nurture big dreams, fulfilling the mission of St. John Bosco. I look forward to welcoming and building relationships to transform students into leaders in our communities.

God bless and Go SHARKS!

Mr. Patrick Lee
President | Principal
