St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School is an exceptional community nestled in the heart of Vista, focusing on our motto To Pray, To Learn, To Serve. Students receive a well-rounded education centered on church teachings and we strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those around us. Our technologically sound, rigorous academic program, along with the extracurricular and enrichment activities prepare students for success in life. The greatest testament is the comment we hear often from families about how peaceful the campus is and the loving, family atmosphere that permeates St. Francis community.

We believe children should have the option of a Catholic education regardless of the family’s financial status and the child’s learning differences. We offer tuition assistance to families and multiple levels of academic support to meet the individual needs of each child. Our exceptional learning support program and focus on Catholic Social Teachings, make St. Francis School a unique place where every child can get what he/she needs to grow and succeed spiritually, academically, emotionally, and physically.
