Welcome, New Families!
Welcome to the St. Francis de Sales Catholic School website and thank you for your interest in our school!
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.
