Selecting a school for your children is one of the most important decisions a parent will make. It is a particularly exciting time to chose St. Francis, as we build on years of tradition and innovate as one of the newest Partnership Schools.
St. Francis is a joy-filled, diverse Catholic school that educates the whole child and helps each student thrive.
As a Partnership School, we leverage the resources of an innovative Catholic school network to:
- Provide students a rigorous curriculum
- Develop teachers with high-quality, research-based professional strategies and coaching
- Manage our school wisely and efficiently, taking advantage of economies of scale
- Partner with local and national philanthropists to ensure a top-notch education for our deserving young people.
We believe all students can achieve at the highest academic levels, and we welcome children of all faiths. Our teachers, staff and network support students academically, spiritually and socially all the way through to high school.
St. Francis students are eligible to receive state-funded scholarships. Tuition for Kindergarten through 8th-grade students is fully funded through the Cleveland Scholarship or EdChoice Scholarship programs. Pre-K students who are eligible will receive a grant to reduce the parent cost. Diocesan need-based scholarships are available for those who may not qualify for a state-funded scholarship.

Of course, the best way to get to know our community is to come see us for yourself. To find out more, fill out our inquiry form.
On behalf of all our teachers and families here at St. Francis, we look forward to working with you and welcoming you to our community.
