As a Catholic School founded in 1743, St. Francis Academy is rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ. In the spirit of St. Francis, who was asked by God to rebuild His Church, we strive to prepare our students for a life of service to their community and to the world by building a strong foundation of faith, along with academic excellence.
St. Francis Academy is organized under the Diocese of Allentown Board of Education. Educational policies and curriculum guidelines are issued by the diocesan office in accordance with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Education. We are also accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
To begin each day in God’s presence, the faculty meets for morning prayer. We participate in activities designed to strengthen the Christian spirit within our school community. We hope that, upon leaving our school, the student will carry this Christian spirit into the community.
