In 1971, the community celebrated the opening of St. Francis of Assisi School. Due to a fire in December 1978, students and staff were relocated to St. Joseph School and St. Stanislaus School. Extensive repairs and renovations were completed and in September 1979 students and staff were relocated back at St. Francis of Assisi School. In 1998, the School Board decided to consolidate the St. Francis of Assisi School community with the St. Joseph School community. Mrs. Nancy Tucker, principal and Mr. Andrew Finoro, vice principal administered the two school sites. As of September 2002, students living in the St. Francis School boundary attend the new St. Francis of Assisi School on Imperial Road.


Our Mission Statement

We, the staff and students of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, will strive to grow spiritually, socially and intellectually in our faith community; providing an atmosphere for learning that is safe, attractive, pleasant and educational.

Central to our existence is the student. Our nurturing and guidance will help each child to develop dignity and self-worth while exposing them to a variety of experiences promoting skills and talents and an appreciation of the uniqueness of self and others.

We invite parents to be our partners to make the vision of child as gift a reality and to foster in each student a life-long love of learning.

We acknowledge our commitment to the community, working together with parish and home to mould young minds into future leaders of society exemplifying a life of Christian values.

In an atmosphere of mutual respect and support we will encourage the development of each others unique gifts from God, promoting professional growth and sharing as educators of youth.

Viewing ourselves as valued members of St. Francis Of Assisi Catholic School, we trust in the security and acceptance of our school family, openly taking risks without fear of ridicule.

The common thread weaving through our curriculum is our Catholic Christian values providing perspective and direction in our daily lives.
