Catholic Identity

At St. Francis/Holy Ghost Catholic School, we cultivate a Christ-centered environment where the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Roman Catholic Church are woven into every aspect of our curriculum and daily experiences. As a vibrant community guided by faith, students, teachers, staff, and school families actively engage in their spiritual journey, supporting one another in their quest for spiritual growth.

Our Catholic beliefs serve as the cornerstone of our school community. We prioritize Catholic teaching and traditions through daily practice, prayer, and immersion in the curriculum. Our school environment reflects our Catholic identity through the presence of icons, statues, crucifixes, and other Catholic imagery, serving as constant reminders of our commitment to our faith. Participation in sacraments and service initiatives further reinforces our commitment to living out our faith every day.

At St. Francis/Holy Ghost Catholic School, both students and teachers actively live out their Catholic faith, providing meaningful experiences and instruction. Our goal is to equip graduates with a deep understanding of God's message as proclaimed by the Church, a profound sense of Jesus' presence in prayer and worship, a commitment to community through acts of service, and a solid foundation in Catholic doctrine.

Together, we strive to nurture a fellowship where faith is not just taught but lived, shaping compassionate, well-rounded individuals prepared to make a positive impact on the world.


St. Francis/Holy Ghost Catholic School prides itself on offering a comprehensive academic curriculum designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in both academic pursuits and personal endeavors. Our curriculum is carefully crafted to ensure that students are well-prepared to navigate the challenges they may encounter in their academic journey and beyond. We believe that instilling these values in our students is essential for their overall growth and development, preparing them to become responsible and compassionate members of society.

Extra-Curricular Activities

In addition to our rigorous academic program, we offer a diverse range of extra-curricular activities, including clubs and sports, that provide students with opportunities to explore their interests, develop their talents, and build lasting friendships. They allow students to explore interests from arts and sciences to athletics, enabling them to cultivate their passions while honing their talents. They are not only a source of enjoyment but also serve as platforms for students to further integrate the principles of faith, academics, and service into their lives.
