Family & Community

Parish SchoolSince 1929, St. Francis of Assisi Parish School has served the Springfield, Delaware County community. Ranging from age 3 in our Pre-School, to age 14 in our eighth grade, we strive to meet the needs of every child we are blessed to have as a member of our school community. Since Christ is the reason for the school, we ensure that the truths of the Catholic faith are taught and learned by all students. Our technology program is definitely twenty-first century as we try to develop all the talents of our students.

Parish School Home & School Association – The St. Francis of Assisi School Home & School Association is a tremendous asset to our school community. Always striving to meet the needs of the school, the members dedicate themselves to fundraising, as well as “spirit-raising” when we just get together to enjoy each other’s company. The Home & School Association arranges for assemblies for the students and speakers for the general Home & School meetings. We are so grateful for the active membership that truly joins home with school.
