St. Francis Catholic High School

5900 Elvas Avenue, Sacramento CA 95819
(916) 737-5040 | 

Why an All-Girls School? At St. Francis, the top Calculus student is a young woman. The lead in the fall play and the student body president are young women. The Robotics team, Troubie TV, and our 50+ clubs are all led by talented young women who see no limits when it comes to education and personal accomplishment. When young women see over and over again—in classrooms, on playing fields, in science labs, and on stage—that they can do anything, barriers vanish and suddenly the sky is the limit. Research verifies – and our experience affirms – that young women in a single-sex environment succeed well above their counterparts across the nation. We invite you to visit our campus to learn more about the St. Francis advantage, including $34 million in scholarships earned by the Class of 2017, our award-winning Arts program, and the 125 St. Francis seniors over the last five years who committed to play collegiate sports.

sacramento country day school

2636 Latham Drive, Sacramento, CA 95864
(916) 481-8811 |

Project-based learning and experiential education are hallmarks of Country Day’s engaging, student-centered curriculum. Across the 14 grades of our school, we believe that students learn best by doing. For example, High School Biology teacher, Dr. Kellie Whited, partners with teachers in our Lower School to lead elementary school students in captivating, interactive science activities in our science laboratories. In this distinct program, our high school students often serve as mentors to these budding scientists, and our youngest students are inspired and challenged to think and act like specialists in the field.

In Country Day’s laboratory for discovery, active learning happens when students engage within and beyond the classroom through imaginative projects, such as assembling tornado tubes to better understand the dynamics of weather (pictured), and rich collaboration with classmates and teachers, all of which makes for the best educational experience in Sacramento.
