St. Francis de Sales Catholic School exists for the purpose of forming the whole person in a God-centered educational community. Enlivened by faith, we accept our share of responsibility, along with the parents, Church and community. We are committed to forming each student into the image of Jesus Christ by developing his/her spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual gifts. Through service and worship our students learn to recognize and share their individual talents. We seek to provide them with an education that prepares them for their role in our changing society and their eternal life in heaven.
