Kid's don't graduate at st francis, they all have to go to public school eventually.
Every year the 8th graders attend their 8th grade graduation ceremony at the school. After they graduate their family will help them decide what school to attend to finish their education. Some choose public school and some choose Dubois Central Catholic. There is a bus that picks the kids up at St. Francis School to transport them to DCC. So no...they do not have to go to public school eventually and yes, they do graduate from St. Francis.

It's a Catholic based education. Nothing good about that! Roman Catholisism is a cult!

I am a graduate of clearfield high school in the mid 90's and am not catholic. After much deliberation, my spouse and I feel st Francis is the best place for our child and future children. It is very refreshing to send our child to a school that cares about the kids so much. In 9th grade we had the kids from st Francis join us at CHS. They were awesome people and one of my closest friends went to school there. They are not arrogant and assimilated well and comprised a large percentage of our top ten students. People who send their kids there are not looking for handouts and expect their children to do well. It is a sacrifice to pay tuition and much time is required to keep costs affordable. Even though I am a devout Protestant I feel this is an amazing place for my kids. Even though I have only been part of the family for a short time I am impressed so far and thank God I didn't settle on public school.

Personal decision and preference. When I was in school the troubled kids were sent to cma. I had a hard enough time deciding to send my child to a small school. Reputation and word of mouth is very valuable in my opinion. Not saying cma is bad but just not a right fit for us.

Thanks for your reply. I really don't know much about either school so that's why I was asking.

Thank you for asking legitimate questions and not rushing to judgement like most on here. I did not go to st Francis and my husband went to a neighboring district. If you would have asked me 6 years ago where my child would go to school I would have said without a doubt clearfield elementary. But after some careful thought and reasoning we chose SFS. Not sorry in the least!!!!

Children that go to St. Francis are challenged and are encouraged to strive for success from the start. There are many families that intended to send their children for Pre-School only and have stayed through eighth grade. The children at St. Francis are seen as individuals and not just test scores. The school has a family atmosphere and the teachers there really care.

Perhaps it is confidence and high self esteem that you are mistaking for arrogance. It has been and stilln is an excellent school! Why do you suppose the teachers stay if the pay is not equivalent to that of the public school's?

Saint Francis is a wonderful school. They challenege the students, encourage community envolvement and incorporate a faith based program. All of the teachers seem to have a personal investment in their classes, meaning it's not just a job to them. Regardless if what religion you practice, I believe St. Francis to be one of the best schools in ther area.
As for CMA - I'm not exactly sure how they manage to stay open. The curriculum there is mediocre at best. Students there come out borderline brainwashed and horrible sheltered. Children are not taught social graces or even encouraged to socialize beyond the school, and are taught that everyone who does not attend CMA is a sinner.
It is very disturbing to me that a friend chose to send her child there. Her child is 6 and is terrified that she is going to hell and yet her reading and math skills are not even on par with those of the local public schools.
I believe at one point in time CMA was a good educational institution, unfortunately I. The past decade it has become more of a cult!
