Faith. Compassion. Excellence. Perseverance. Joy

We aspire to the highest level of academic excellence.


St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School is fully accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission.  In the spring of 2010, a team from the NWAC visited our school.  Based on self-study, student work and observations in our classrooms, they validated our school’s accreditation.  The standards of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School are commensurate with, or exceed those in public education with respect to length of school year, instructional time, student/teacher ratio and curriculum. Faculty members are certified by the State of Oregon and licensed in the areas they teach. Our students consistently perform well above average on standardized achievement tests, including the Oregon Statewide Assessment.

Differentiated Curriculum

St. Francis Of Assisi Catholic School differentiates curriculum providing students multiple options for acquiring information and making sense of ideas.  We put students first. The primary way of achieving this is through the study of universal concepts.  Teachers provide students with deep and complex learning experiences, challenging them at all levels.  Teachers use a dynamic blend of whole group, small group and individual instruction. Flexible grouping allows students to interact with others to develop new ideas.  Students are encouraged to question the reasoning and assumptions behind ideas, and student-led inquiry is embraced.  Differentiation recognizes student background knowledge, readiness and preferences in learning and interests.
