There is so much negativity in  this world that we often forget that there is light at the end of the tunnel. The students of St. Francis School are that light. (Parent of a student at St. Francis School)

Four Francisan Sisters of Christian Charity tell their stories about life in the Mississippi Delta with a Catholic population of only 2.5%. Open to all who come seeking a solid education with a firm foundation based on the Gospel, St. Francis School was founded on the Christian principle that all people have dignity and worth in the eyes of God.

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Province of Franciscan Friars began ministry in August 1951 building a church and school. Today a growing diverse population continues.
