Signature Programs

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program: Saint Francis has taken the lead as the first Catholic school in the Baltimore area to be authorized to offer this world-class program.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: In a Montessori-based format, students in Preschool through 3rd grade spend time each week in a retreat-like setting where they work with hands-on materials to learn more about scripture, liturgy, and prayer.

1:1 iPad Program: Middle School students at Saint Francis use personal iPads in all their classes on a regular basis.

STEM and 3-D Printing: We are proud to be part of the Archdiocesan initiative to bring 3-D printing into the schools and to infuse all classrooms with a STEM-based Science program.

Monarch Butterfly Garden: On our campus, we have a garden of milkweed and other important plants to create a habitat for migrating monarch butterflies. Each fall, the classroom experience is enriched by the active study of monarchs as they feed on the milkweed, form a chrysalis, and emerge as butterflies to be released on their journey south. We are very grateful to support from the Rotary Foundation and the Monarch Sister Schools Project.
