Private School in the Arlington Area

Choosing the right school can have a major impact on your child’s success later in life -- and at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, we believe that it’s never too early to make academic excellence a priority. Our commitment to academic excellence was recognized by the U.S. Department of Education in 2010 when St. Francis was named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.


With our emphasis on excellence, we’ve produced numerous valedictorians, salutatorians and National Merit Finalists. Our students go on to excel at Memphis area Catholic high schools such as St. Benedict at Auburndale, Christian Brothers, and St. Agnes Academy.


If you’ve been looking for an Arlington private Catholic school, St. Francis is an excellent choice. Located in Cordova, TN, our student body includes more than 550 students from 33 zip codes in the greater Memphis area.


Our school makes use of the latest technology, with a STEM lab, numerous SmartBoard classrooms, and the 1:1 use of iPad Minis for students in grades 3K-3 and MacBook Air laptops in grades 4-8. We will be installing Apple TV’s in classrooms to enhance our students’ learning experience.


Looking ahead, St. Francis will be the first Catholic elementary school in Memphis to launch Project Lead the Way across all grade levels in the 2018-2019 school year. We are excited to offer PLTW programs to our students, giving them the tools to solve problems and skills for success.


We also understand the importance of the arts, with two art rooms, a band room and two music rooms. St. Francis also boasts 30 academic clubs and 66 athletic teams.
