Development of the “whole person”

Franciscan Education

Roger Bacon High School is committed to developing the academic and intellectual abilities of its students. In addition, Franciscan education is committed to the development of the "whole person." Graduates of Roger Bacon display enduring qualities of character; they are educated in heart as well as in mind and body.

It is our goal to instill in these men and women the skills necessary for a lifetime of learning, giving them an appreciation for others and those less fortunate and developing in them a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Roger Bacon asks its students to understand Catholicism, but that faith takes different shapes in different individuals and it cannot be coerced or manufactured. In addition, faith undergoes change and maturation during the transition from childhood to adulthood. Roger Bacon is committed to creating an environment in which religious faith is valued and nourished. The liturgical and spiritual programs offered by Roger Bacon are essential expressions of the school's mission.
