Since 1956, St. Francis de Sales School has been providing Catholic education for Lake Zurich and neighboring areas. Our key norms, community, innovation, growth, and service, are actively taught and visibly practiced. The school's mission is to create a community of faith in which students, teachers, and parents live the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, share knowledge in a spirit of freedom and love, and cultivate service to God and neighbor.

Our greatest achievement as a school is the strong fellowship we have built beginning within our walls and extending into the world beyond to form an expanding circle of solidarity. Our school motto, "All for One, and One for All in Jesus Christ," illustrates our core belief that by working in solidarity with one another, we can accomplish far more than we can as individuals.

At the same time, we recognize, respect, and celebrate individual differences and continually develop learning plans that meet individual needs and learning styles.
Academically, we promote educational excellence in a Catholic environment and offer opportunities for students to attain their full potential. Success is achieved through a rigorous and challenging curriculum, data driven plans for continuous improvement, and an emphasis on technology.

We are equally committed to the development of all aspects of our students' lives. Through our athletic and fine arts programs, clubs, service opportunities, and faith-based traditions and initiatives, students cultivate varied interests and talents. St. Francis de Sales School is proud of its achievements and continues to work toward educating students in mind, body, and spirit.
