Families will then have the opportunity to visit classrooms and speak with teachers. Students should attend the Meet & Greet in school uniform and bring their school supplies to leave in their desks. Students will be free to leave at the conclusion of the session.

Welcome back Lions! We are so excited to start the school year and we enjoyed seeing all of the students at the Meet & Greet. Our school community is blessed to have such wonderful students and families and we look forward to a great school year!

Mission Statement

Since 1918, St. Francis de Sales Catholic School has continued the initiative of its founding Dominican Sisters to form students in a loving and challenging academic environment enlivened by its commitment to the teachings of the Gospel, the modeling of Catholic values, and a passion for developing the unique gifts of each child as a reflection and celebration of Christ. Our school is located in downtown Riverside and serves students in preschool through eighth grade in the County of Riverside and throughout the Diocese of San Bernardino. As an inclusive and diverse community, we partner with parents who seek excellence in academics combined with the benefits and value of a Catholic education for their children. St. Francis de Sales Catholic School has a tradition of success in preparing students to be faith-filled leaders who are effective communicators, life-long learners, and globally aware citizens.
