Future Students


  • Future

    At Saint Francis, we believe that if you have the passion, drive and faith to pour your heart into it, then you can achieve anything you set your mind to. We’ll show you how. 

    Like our namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, we have chosen the road of mission, purpose and values. We encourage our students to reach higher—to go far into the world—while diligently putting their talents toward making the world a better place for all. Simply put, we believe a solid, Franciscan, liberal arts education is the surest way for students to make sense of a world in rapid motion. 

    There will be goals that will be harder to reach than others, but you will always end up farther ahead if your goal is to reach higher than you ever have before.

    Choose the option that best describes your current situation and we’ll show you how you can reach higher today.

  • See what our students mean when they say “Reach higher. Go Far.”

  • No selfies here. Next time you’re traveling, look around. If you happen to see people with their hands in the air and backs to the camera; they are striking the now infamous “Reach Higher. Go Far.” pose that mimicks the cover of our viewbook from 10 years ago! They are also doing this completely on their own and not part of any marketing campaign. Students share these photos with us, and now we share them with you. For our students, RHGF is not a tagline, it has become an authentic expression of their experience at Saint Francis University.
