St. Francis of the Lakes Catholic School

Every child is a unique gift from God.  St. Francis of the Lakes Catholic School provides more personal attention to every student.  Every child does better in an individualized and caring environment.

At St. Francis “religion” is more than a subject.  It is integrated into every aspect of our day through prayer, Christian formation, example, pastoral visits, active participation in Mass, stewardship and so much more.  “The various school subjects do not present only knowledge to be attained, but also values to be acquired and truths to be discovered.” St. Francis offers an environment “in which faith, culture and life are brought into harmony”.


We are leading our students to have a successful future. Academically, our students are ranked higher than the national average in every class and in every subject! This is based off the MAP Assessments. There are approximately 4,000 school districts representing about 4 million students using MAP. We are proud to show you our results.


Our Mission...

St. Francis of the Lakes Catholic School, in cooperation with and in support of the family, is committed to challenging students to grow spiritually, academically and socially within a Catholic environment.
