St. Francis of Assisi School in Baltimore, operating under the guidance of the Archdiocese of Baltimore Department of Catholic Schools, follows a curriculum carefully crafted to prepare students to embody their Catholic faith, while also ensuring they are well-prepared for both college and careers. Our courses of study are designed to nurture their Catholic identity, encouraging them to become exemplars of Christian values and positive influences on others.

Our curriculum is both rigorous and comprehensive, offering a wide array of disciplines to enrich students’ academic journey. We continuously update and uphold challenging standards to fulfill our commitment to providing quality Catholic education that addresses the holistic development of each child – mind, body, and soul.

Aligned with the educational guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Baltimore and surpassing the requirements of the Maryland State Department of Education, our curriculum is regularly reviewed and refined to meet the evolving needs of our students and society. For further understanding of the curriculum revision process and its significance, we invite you to read the Archdiocesan Statement on Curriculum Revisions.

As Catholic educators, we consider it our ministry to integrate our faith into every aspect of our work. Our mission is not only to teach but also to model a personal and profound relationship with Jesus, laying the groundwork for a lifelong journey of learning and discipleship.


Our Curriculum builds on the best of our traditions while embracing innovation.
