Founded under the leadership of the Very Revered Justin Figas, OFM Conv, St. Francis High School was established, administered and staffed by the friars of our province, alongside dedicated lay staff and Religious Sisters, to serve young men of diverse faiths and backgrounds from throughout Western New York and beyond. The students receive a top notch college preparatory education that can include a residence program where students from all over the world can live in a safe, structured and enjoyable living environment. Students enjoy a wide range of extracurricular activities, rigorous academics, sports, and fine arts through a Franciscan holistic education: mind body and spirit.
