Admissions Process

The Road that Makes All the Difference
The Road that Makes All the Difference

New Hampshire’s poet, Robert Frost, whose farm is just a few miles outside of Litchfield, wrote a famous poem about the significance of a choice that a person makes when the road divides. The figure in Frost’s poem takes the road less traveled by and when thinking back, he or she utters, “that has made all the difference.”

For 39 years and counting, Saint Francis of Assisi School continues to make all the difference. Our school, rich in community, offers a unique education; one that takes into account the whole person. At St. Francis School, students receive a rigorous curriculum and a strong formation in the Catholic Faith.

Below is a road map through the admission’s process, but do not be afraid to stop and ask directions along the way.
