Welcome from Mr. Joe Budde

Welcome to Saint Frances Cabrini School where we embody a comprehensive, rigorous, holistic approach to Catholic education. Ours is a balanced program that is distinguished by our Catholic tradition and our meeting or exceeding of the standards considered essential for quality education.

We are a school that believes each child should live up to his potential by doing his best. We are a faith-based school where Jesus calls us to action to be people of integrity and global citizens. Schoolwide Learning Expectations frame who we are in relationship to 21st Century teaching with a foundation in best practices. Our goal is to provide a quality, faith-centered education which challenges, inspires and motivates each one to be an active disciple of Christ, a lifelong learner and a respectful responsible citizen.

My name is Joe Budde. I have been hired to be the Interim Principal at St. Frances Cabrini for the coming school year. I look forward to meeting you soon and sharing the good work you do at SFC with parents, parishioners, and the greater Lakewood/Tacoma community.

God Bless
Mr. Joe Budde

"My daughter has only been in school here for two weeks. In this short time, however, she has already displayed some signs of Christian growth.  The questions she asks about life and death are probing and complex.  As parents these questions enhance our Christian growth, as well."
"By attending St. Frances Cabrini School, my child will gain the continuation of respect, tolerance, self discipline and the caring for others."
"The school's greatest strengths are many, but discipline and keeping parents informed of student progress seem to stand out."
"The school gives great attention to the needs of its students, plus it is relatively small. The school has high standards of achievement."
