Neil Simon, Playwright

From the desk of Mr. McLaughlin: 

As we complete our first month of school, we have successfully welcomed all of our students, especially our Class of 2022 with SFP Follies, Strategies for Academic Success, and iPad training and distribution and an orientation day for sophomore, juniors, and seniors. We are a community of learners in a nurturing, rewarding, challenging, and inspiring environment at St. Francis Prep. Our faculty, staff, and students live out our Franciscan values on a daily basis: To Live Lovingly, Care for Creation, Proclaim Joy and Hope, and Be Living Instruments of Peace.

I wish everyone a peaceful, productive, and enriching 2018-19 school year!

Mr. McLaughlin


On Friday, September 28, St. Francis Prep held its 8th annual Walk-a-thon fundraising event. The proceeds of this event benefit special projects and programs at the Prep, most notably the current Capital Improvement and Modernization Project. As you know, we already constructed new Physical Education and Art Education Centers and totally overhauled the Science Classrooms and Laboratories. Currently, the construction of new Music Education facilities is well underway. Thanks to everyone for making Friday’s Walkathon a great success!
