ST. FRANCIS CATHOLIC
5900 Elvas Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95819
Since 1940, St. Francis Catholic High School students have been encouraged to develop their talents and discover their passions in every area of their lives. Because the young women of St. Francis cultivate a genuine love of learning inside and outside of the classroom in conjunction with a deeper sense of purpose, they are prepared to succeed wherever they go. And succeed they do – the St. Francis Class of 2015 earned more than $26 million in scholarships and had a 99% college attendance rate. Our visual and performing arts students receive regional and statewide recognition in all areas of the arts and enjoy an Arts Complex with studio space and a 500 seat theatre. With 90 Section titles, St. Francis has one of the top female sports programs in the region and the state; 22 seniors committed to play collegiate sports in 2015. A St. Francis education instills a confidence and commitment that extends far beyond graduation…it is truly four years that last a lifetime.
SACRAMENTO COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL
2636 Latham Drive, Sacramento, CA 95864
916.481.8811 • www.saccds.org
Country Day High School senior Serajh is focused. Performing at commencement on the cello, playing on our section-championship basketball team, or presiding over a student council meeting, his concentration is solid. And, he’s not alone in his desire and ability to absorb all that Country Day offers. Small seminar classes, dedicated teachers, and motivated classmates inspire students like Serajh to maximize their potential – Country Day students join teams, pick up instruments, excel on AP exams, give back to the community, gain admission to the nation’s top colleges, and never limit themselves in what they can achieve.
At Country Day, Sacramento’s premier Pre-K through 12th grade school, students benefit from daily discussions with an accomplished faculty. And it shows. It shows in our SAT scores – the highest throughout the region – and it shows in our exceptional list of college acceptances each year. Celebrating 50 years as the leading independent school in Sacramento, Country Day provides an education that students will carry with them for a lifetime.
