St. Francis de Sales School Mission
One of the Premiere Catholic Schools In Houston!
Our School’s Philosophy
We, at St. Francis de Sales Catholic School, acknowledge that parents are the first, and foremost, educators of their children and are charged with the challenging task of creating a family atmosphere animated with love and reverence for God and all people. We recognize, too, that the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs (Christian Education Vatican II). We are privileged to assist parents in the task of educating their children.
Central to the educational mission of St. Francis de Sales School are the teachings of Jesus Christ. At St. Francis de Sales Catholic School, we are dedicated to helping students live the Gospel. We recognize the importance and uniqueness of each student and are committed to helping each student recognize the importance and uniqueness of self and each other.
It is the joint responsibility of students, teachers, and parents to make St. Francis de Sales Catholic School a faith-filled community where the primary purpose of education, helping students reach their potential, is enlivened by the Gospel spirit of freedom and charity.
The aim and desired result is to graduate students who are well-versed in the Catholic faith, Christian in their attitude and outlook, and academically prepared to continue their education.
We encourage families to apply online as it simplifies submission and provides parents the ability to track the status of their child's application.
After submitting an application, you will be able to track your admissions status at the school by logging in to your account.
Private school is a big decision. Review the SFdS Annual Tuition for grades Pre-K through 8th Grade.
