About Us

The St. Francis Work Study Program prepares students for success in college and the work place by offering them the opportunity for both academic study and experiential learning in a work environment. By offering this program, SFDS can offer an affordable quality, college prep education that opens doors for families at all income levels.


SFDS Work Study student scholars are part of a job-sharing team. Students work once every four days at a local business in an office or administration setting from approximately 8:30-4:30pm. For their convenience, students are transported directly from the school to their place of employment by SFDSHS.


While Work Study is an integral part of our students’ curriculum, we remain a college preparatory school. We believe that their experience in the Work Study program will give them life skills that will prepare them for independence and success at the collegiate level.
