Saint Francis of Assisi School

Where faith and education merge with excellence

Saint Francis of Assisi school was opened in 1929. We presently occupy three buildings, with the Pre-School classes held in the building adjacent to Conway Hall. The stone school building contains classrooms for Kindergarten, Grades 1-3, main  office, computer lab, nurse's office, Delaware County Intermediate Unit  remediation and counseling room. The brick building presently contains classrooms for Grades 4-8, principal's office, faculty room, Honors math classroom and contains a combination auditorium/gymnasium. St. Francis of Assisi School has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1984.

The preschool program at St. Francis of Assisi provides a curriculum that is based on the Early Childhood Guidelines set by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and supplemented with the PA Early Childhood Standards and the award winning Investigator Club curriculum.

Our daily schedule is structured enough to provide the children with a familiarity of a routine yet maintains the flexibility to adjust to a young child’s individual needs. All activities are developmentally appropriate.

St. Francis of Assisi Preschool Program accepts children between the ages of 3 - 5 years old. All children MUST be potty trained.

Class size is limited.

Through the guidance and dedication of our faculty and staff, we strive to build a safe and loving environment that encourages positive socialization, creativity, hands on experiences and an eagerness to learn, play and work together.
