Welcome from Mrs. Francie Jordan

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 and Curriculum Standards 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 that challenges, inspires and motivates each one to be an active disciple of Christ, a lifelong learner and a respectful responsible citizen.

My name is Francie Jordan.  I am the Interim Principal at St. Frances Cabrini for the remainder of the 2019-2020 year. I am a proud graduate of Gonzaga University, where I earned my B.A. in English and Education and my M.A. in Administration and Curriculum as well as my Principal Certification.  I was a teacher, teacher trainer, and curriculum specialist in Tacoma Public Schools for 25 years before going to St. Patrick Catholic School as principal for 10 years.  After “retirement” I served as interim principal at Holy Family School in Auburn for six months and interim Parish Administrator at St. Rita Parish for one year.  St. Frances Cabrini has been such a blessing for me.  The entire school and parish community are such a faith-fill asset to me and the area.  Thank you!

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 a faith-based, quality education.

"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."
