Thank you for considering St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, where we are committed to walking with our students down the exciting, enriching, and challenging road to academic success.  It’s been our privilege to offer a quality, faith-based education to students from our neighborhood and beyond for over 50 years and we hope that you will join us as we continue in the coming year to grow as Leaders Together In Faith.

Our families come to us from across the greater Houston area, represent many faiths, and share our vision of working toward the actualization of each student’s potential.  When your student becomes part of the SFA family, they will receive an education that will prepare them academically, spiritually and developmentally to excel at some of the city’s best college preparatory high schools– and they will have the freedom to do so within an inclusive atmosphere that fosters a love of learning, developing the values to make responsible choices and the importance of service to others.

On behalf of the SFA community, we hope your visit to our online admissions office is just the starting point of your journey with us and invite you to contact our school directly via email (link to email) or by contacting our office to set up a private tour of our campus. Please take a few minutes to explore our site and uncover the many opportunities that St. Francis of Assisi can offer your child.  When you are ready to visit us in person, please feel free to contact our school office to set up a visit.
