Why choose SFSH?

Our Philosophy

St. Francis-St. Hedwig School is committed to the development of programs that provide the foundation for the growth of each student as a whole Catholic Christian Child. The strength of our program is in the model initiated by Jesus: Message, Service, and Community. We are dedicated to the educational mission of the church: To Teach as Jesus Did. Our Family of Faith works together to foster an environment in which each child can grow spiritually, academically, socially, physically, and emotionally both in our school community and the communities around us.

We believe that St. Francis-St. Hedwig School provides a unique setting for the growth of its faith community by developing an atmosphere based on the Gospel. Our curriculum prepares students to find responsible solutions to contemporary problems in an atmosphere based on mutual respect, trust, love, and peace.

Our program is further enhanced by extending service to others. Through community service, the students can become aware of their responsibility to others. We, as Catholic educators, encourage service to God, Church, and neighbor through prayer and direct participation in serving the Church’s mission while sharing our special gifts for the good of all.

It is our hope that by weaving the threads of the mission-message, service, and community –into our daily lives, we will help each child develop into a complete Catholic Christian individual.
