Saint Francis Catholic Academy
- School - Private
In May of 1983, members of the Gainesville community came together to begin the journey to establish a Gainesville Catholic High School. Twenty-one years later, on August 16, 2004, the doors to Gainesville’s first and only Catholic high school opened, through the foresight of Bishop John J. Snyder, the eighth Bishop of St. Augustine, and the generosity of the Opportunity of a Lifetime Campaign.
Our mission at Saint Francis Catholic Academy, in accordance with the Catholic Faith and the Diocese of St. Augustine, strives to create an environment where students can succeed and grow spiritually, intellectually and athletically so that they can better serve the world as adults.
