Spring has (finally!) Sprung -- Our Spring Appeal is Underway!

Happy Spring!

Dear St. Francis de Sales Community, 

Hope springs eternal at St. Francis de Sales High School! We are looking forward to the 2018 graduating class receiving their diplomas on May 23! Through their hard work and academic achievements, they are being accepted into prestigious colleges and are receiving between $14,000 and $164,000 per year in scholarship support - totaling $1.25 million and counting overall. We are so proud!

Because of your support, our students are flourishing. As we look forward to warmer weather, we're reminded to continue to challenge ourselves and provide the best possible education for the youth on East Side of Chicago. You may have recently learned of the launch of a feasibility study, exploring the implementation of a Work Study Program at St. Francis de Sales High School.This shift would enable students to work in the business community, gaining valuable real-world experience while maintaining the same high quality level of academics. TheWork Study model, launched by Cristo Rey in Pilsen in the 1990's, has proven enormous outcomes for students. We're encouraged to already have several small businesses and jobs confirmed - it's a very exciting time to be a Pioneer! More information can be found on our website - - and we welcome your feedback.

Please consider a gift today to help build the foundation of the future for St. Francis de Sales and our students. With your help, and the collective assistance of many, our youth will continue to aim high and achieve great things.
