High Quality Faculty
Small Classes, Big Thinking
Students at Pope Francis High School receive the best possible education rooted in the Catholic traditions that formed the foundation of our legacy schools.
We offer a comprehensive curriculum that includes both Advanced Placement and Honors courses, with a focus on preparing students for college. We foster students’ intellect with a robust selection of rigorous courses that follow the STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math) program. Students are supported by the fundamentals of the program and receive a foundation in religious studies, history, math, science, English, languages and the arts.
The commitment to academic excellence remains a key component of the Pope Francis High School mission to challenge students to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically to become critical thinkers and faith-based leaders. We develop students who can think analytically and demonstrate a mastery of oral and written communication; are leaders, but can work effectively as part of a team; have a global perspective; form a unique relationship with God and develop an authentic prayer life; and, above all, act with integrity and self-discipline, demonstrating ethical decision-making skills and embracing a commitment to selfless service.
