  • What an amazing place to be! It must be a work of the Holy Spirit. Franciscan is a holy place, not yet heaven, but a way towards for sure. Ma God bless all its Faculty and Staff members, and its students. That all may continue to spread the Gospel and witness to the Faith.
  • I want to go here for college with my best friend Caleb.
  • One Student their is horrible and rude. He/she is so mean to children. what a shame!
  • This is a very nice school with very friendly people.
  • I've been a student here for almost two years and I've found the experience to be one of the most amazing, life enhancing experiences of my life. I'm at home away from home.
