Welcome Parents,

We are a Catholic community gifted with faith at Saint Francis High School. We serve over 1,600 students, 3,000 parents, 150 faculty, support staff, alumni and community groups. We encourage you to get involved, share your ideas and become immersed in the Saint Francis culture and spirit in order to provide an unparalleled high school experience for our students. GO BROWNS!

If you are interested in a great high school volunteer opportunity, with low time commitment (only five council meetings) and a chance to learn more about Saint Francis, please contact Claude Chretien for more information at stfrancis@schoolcouncil.cssd.ab.ca or mcchretien@shaw.ca or cell phone number 403-465-1263.

Our first meeting “High School 101 for Parents”, you will learn the ins and outs of high school life including homework vs. school work, advocacy, navigating the D2L, parent involvement, anxiety and substance abuse.

Please ensure a valid email address is entered on your child’s demographic form which will be sent home in September to ensure you stay up to date with Saint Francis news and information.

Please mark these dates on your calendar and check our website for updates:
