St. Francis Borgia High School

Washington, MO
St. Francis Borgia High School Building

If you visit our St. Francis Borgia High School, I can almost assure you that you’ll hear us refer to our school as the “Borgia Family.” While it may sound a bit cheesy, there’s really no better way to describe the bond we have here. Something special about our family is that we have the opportunity to worship, pray, and grow in our faith together. Faith is at the center of all we do. We are committed to serving others and foster a community of kindness and acceptance.

We take pride knowing we are a part of the Borgia Family. When a student receives high praise for an assignment, receives a scholarship, or is accepted to a college they’ve dreamed of, we celebrate right along with them. When someone finds success in one of our many clubs, sports, or musical or theatrical productions, we cheer them on. When one of our kids excels on the court, field, or course, we all win.

The Borgia Family truly is something like no other; I have difficulty describing it in words. I invite you to come join us for a shadow day or to sit down with our faculty and students. Experience the Borgia Family for yourself.

Our mission is to provide a Catholic education that fosters spiritually, morally, academically and technologically prepared lifelong learners.


Students develop a heart and mind for God through service to others, extensive retreat programs, Theology classes, daily prayer as a school and in individual classes. President Fr. Kevin Schmittgens celebrates weekly and monthly Masses, Eucharistic adoration, and reconciliation. We incorporate gospel values into our lessons. Students know God through his word in both the Old and New Testament, morality teachings, ecumenism, and an understanding of our church and sacraments.


St. Francis Borgia meets all student needs. We offer a large number of vigorous electives, challenging coursework through 81 hours of either our AP classes or 1818 advanced college credit program. We provide a learning consultant for students needing extra support, and a strong guidance staff complete with a college specialist. Graduation requirements above state and national levels.
