St. Francis High School: Salesian College Preparatory recognizes the importance of a high quality, holistic education for a rapidly changing world. Guided by St. John Bosco’s educational philosophy of reason, religion, and loving kindness, and in the spirit of St. Mary Mazzarello, foundress of the Salesian Sisters, St. Francis High School provides a college preparatory education for students from diverse abilities and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Embracing St. John Bosco’s vision of community as family, St. Francis High School collaborates as a total Salesian family--students, parents, administrators, teachers, and staff--to achieve the goal of preparing young people to be outstanding citizens of this world and the next.
In 2019-2020 the school made the decision to separate academics/graduation requirements from the Student-Family Handbook. We did this to make it easier for students, parents, and staff to inform and support high levels of student learning and success.
St. Francis High School is fully accredited by the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA), Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and the Salesians of the Providence of St. Andrews.
The Academic Handbook is to be used in conjunction with the St. Francis High School Student-Family Handbook and the Computer, Internet, Social Media, and iPad Acceptable Use Agreement. The St. Francis High School Administration reserves the right to amend this handbook at any time. Amendments will be communicated to parents via the school webpage and written communication.
