Excellence in Catholic Education
St. Francis of Assisi School is a private transitional 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.
We are dedicated to providing a quality, faith-based Catholic education in a safe and nurturing environment for students in grades TK-8. Our value-centered academic programs empower the students with the skills to be active Christians, life-long learners, and responsible citizens.
Host Families are needed for the New Family Partner Program. You can earn 30 service hours while helping a New SFA family learn the ins and outs of SFA. Given the uncertainty of the times, you will become an invaluable resource to help these families feel welcomed into our community. While being a Host Family is a year-long commitment, most events typically take place in the summer and at the beginning of the school year.

"SFA is a school that prepares children to succeed academically. The administration, teachers, and staff are truly dedicated to the students. Their attentiveness to your child’s needs academically and socially are second to none. Equally important is the school’s emphasis on developing students of great character. Students participate in philanthropic projects and are instilled with core values of kindness and inclusivity that set them on a path to be thoughtful and kind citizens on and off campus. SFA has been a “home away from home” for our son and has been an integral part of his growth as a student and person since Kindergarten. We strongly recommend SFA School."
Jason and Amy Ribando
"St. Francis of Assisi School has been a great experience for our three kids these past 12 years. Recalling what our son's third grade teacher told us: 'We teach the entire child.' It perfectly encapsulates that every faculty and staff member is 100% dedicated to nurturing each child's mind, body, and spirit. SFA continues to be a safe learning environment where every student can learn and grow to be their own person."
Joanne Barrios (8th grade and 5th grade parent)
“I decided to send my daughters to Catholic school because I wanted them to develop a strong religious foundation with daily and weekly lessons and masses that would expand on our practices at home. I wanted my girls to learn and grow within a close knit community that would be supportive and hold them accountable for their actions. I want my daughters to learn about the needs of their community and to help though their conscious awareness and service projects. St. Francis of Assisi School has done all of this and more for not only my daughters but for our family.”
Danny and Tania Bajada (6th grade and alumni parents)
“We have loved being in the SFA community over the last 10 years because it has been a caring environment that has nurtured our boys and helped them to thrive academically, emotionally and spiritually.”
Michael and Lesley Schooler (2nd and 5th grade parents)
“We believe that an education consists of more than test scores and grades. While we are confident that our sons are getting a top notch academic experience at St. Francis, we also know that the school emphasizes the development of character and values. We know that a St. Francis of Assisi education produces good students, but more importantly, good people.”
Charlie and Marcia Vela
“We choose Catholic school because it gives our children a well rounded education. It teaches both virtue and knowledge. SFA has a great community of like minded families.”
Dan and Andrea Pezel (TK and 2nd grade parents)
“The St. Francis school community has been welcoming and inclusive of our family since we started three years ago. While academics are important, we also feel confident that the SFA model reinforces all students to be global citizens and kind humans. There is a true connection among families to look out for each other’s children and well being.”
Francis and Janelle Del Rosario (K and 2nd grade parents)
“We choose a catholic school for our children because of the high quality and value-added education. We wanted to be part of a community that supports our children and pushes them to excel. We’ve been part of the St Francis of Assisi community since 2017 are very pleased with the quality of education the school has to offer.”
Ray and Natalie Kendall (TK and 2nd grade parents)
“St. Francis of Assisi School provides a warm and caring environment for both students and parents. Even though my sons are only in TK and 2nd grade, they are genuinely greeted and welcomed by teachers and students of all grades. The class buddy system, in which older students are paired with and given opportunities to connect with younger students, really helps to foster a school-wide sense that the older students welcome and support the younger ones.”
St. Francis of Assisi is proud to be accredited by both the Western Catholic Educational Association and Western Association of School and Colleges.
