St. Francis of Assisi School is a private kindergarten through eighth grade Catholic school, located in the beautiful city of Concord, CA. Since we first opened our doors in 1965, we have nurtured an environment in which our children are taught Christian values, receive a Catholic education, and are provided with the necessary skills to become responsible citizens in their communities and in the world.
When St. Francis of Assisi School opened in 1965 it was to fulfill a need for quality Catholic education in our community. Since then we have graduated more than 1,100 alumni and have historically performed among the top 25th percentile in standardized testing. But our commitment to excellence does not stop there; we are always looking toward the future, preparing our children to become the leaders of tomorrow.
THE PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
