Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi!

St. Francis of Assisi is a Catholic elementary school located in the heart of Silver Lake with grades ranging from Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. We are a school committed to the intellectual and spiritual development of students through creative and rigorous instructional methods. Students work in small multiage groups to insure that all students receive the appropriate instruction to promote high achievement. We provide our students with an extended academic calendar, a curriculum designed on the Common Core & State Standards and a rich liturgical life that fosters their faith journey. St. Francis of Assisi School is accredited by WCEA and co-accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Teachers are dedicated to working with parents and students collaboratively to best meet the needs of all students within our new Multiage STREAM learning model. SFA’s faculty and staff are dedicated to nurturing the development, curiosity, confidence and self-esteem of all students in order to fully challenge and inspire them to succeed. 

St. Francis of Assisi provides an academically rich environment that creatively uses technology in the classroom while wholly integrating Catholic values.We are committed to create an engaging learning environment that seeks excellence in individualized instruction.  We, at St. Francis of Assisi, are devoted to working side by side with parents and students in order to create a positive learning community catering to the needs of all learners within our new STREAM model of learning. Our vision and end-goal is to equip students with the tools to innovate and act compassionately to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.
