Teaching God's Children Since 1743

Dedicated to helping children realize their tremendous potential, Saint Francis Academy provides high-quality Catholic education in a nurturing, supportive environment. Academic instruction, sacramental preparation, and spiritual formation combine to give students in pre-kindergarten to grade eight a well-rounded foundation for a life of learning and growing in God's love.

Dear Parents,

Welcome Back! Where did the summer go? We had beautiful weather for our first opening days. On our first day of school, we all gathered in MBS Church for a prayer service which included the importance of our religion books. Each teacher stood at the foot of the altar and distributed the religion books to each child who came forward. There is no greater gift to give your child than the opportunity to hear God’s word on a daily basis. God bless all of you on your commitment to Catholic education!

School Closings & Delays

How do you know if the school is closed or dismissing early due to snow or icy conditions???
Parents can do any of the following:
1) Go to the school’s website at www.sfabally.org 2) Turn to (Ch. 69 TV) WFMZ
3) Call the school’s answering machine after 6:15am for closing and delay information 610-845-7364.
***The best thing to do is register your cell phone and/or email on the “Newsflash” button of our school’s website. This will notify you immediately by text message and/or email of any school situations***

Please note: We do not follow the Boyertown School District for closings and delays. If you reside in another school district, you must be aware of St. Francis Academy’s closing or delay schedule. For example, do not send your child to school if your district is operating on a one hour delay and St. Francis has a two hour delay. The school will not be open for any children arriving earlier than what has been announced.
Special Pre-K Note: If there is a two hour delay, the morning Pre-k class will still take place beginning at 10:30 for those who choose to attend.
