Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi School

Saint Francis of Assisi School is a private transitional kindergarten through eighth grade Catholic school, located in the beautiful city of Concord, CA.

We are proud of our nurturing 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.

Our vision is to inspire life-long learners and nurture the next generation of globally responsible citizens.

When Saint 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 1,200 alumni and have historically performed among the top 25th percentile in standardized testing.

Our mission is to foster empathy, love of learning, and passion for service in our students.

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.

And as Saint Francis said, "Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”


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.
