Is St. Francis Xavier School the right
choice for my non-Catholic student?
I’m St. Francis Xavier School’s biggest
non-Catholic cheerleader . . .
“I’ve come to realize that St. Francis is as true an opportunity to develop one’s goodness as a child will ever have. I’ve gone from being a skeptical ‘public school for all’ proponent to St. Francis’ biggest non-Catholic cheerleader.” ~ Michael Ohler, parent
The classroom experience for our non-Catholic students . . .
“I don’t categorize the children in my care as ‘Catholic’ or ‘non-Catholic.’ They are simply my students and I treasure them all. I respect the individuality of each one of them. My goal is the same with each – to have him or her love learning and feel welcome in my classroom and our school community.”
~ Stacey Brandes, 5th grade teacher
What we offer . . .
“Families seek us out because of what we offer to all: an excellent education, strong values, safety and personal responsibility, social and emotional development, partnerships with families, and a caring community.” ~ Eric Becker, Principal
How has our community shaped our students...
“Attending SFX school enriched my life in many ways. Although I'm not a Catholic, the community of teachers, staff and students helped shape who I am today. Everyone always wants the best for their students and wants them to succeed. I see the difference between kids who have attended Catholic school and those who have not - the way they carry themselves, talk and act towards others.” ~ Stephanie Langlais, ‘13
What our community does for you . . .
“The St. Francis community builds you up. They make you feel good about life. It has something to do with the students, of course; they’re just beautiful. They make you feel good. They’re trying to be good human beings. It has a lot to do with our teachers. They get it. They are fully committed to their students and they love what they do." ~ Fr. Scott Gratton
