St. Francis of Assisi School, formerly Most Precious Blood, was opened in 1965 as one of several Contra Costa schools staffed by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.   For over 45 years, we have been a fixture on Oak Grove Road in Concord, celebrating the graduations of over sixteen hundred young men and women, prepared to share themselves with the greater world.   

In collaboration with St. Francis of Assisi Parish, our school is dedicated to providing a faith-based Catholic education of the highest quality, in a safe and nurturing environment for students in grades kindergarten through eighth.  Our value-centered academic programs empower the students with the skills to be active Christians, life-long learners, creative problem solvers, and responsible citizens.

Under the combined guidance of St. Joseph, patron of the sisters who still serve in our school community, and St. Francis of Assisi, patron of the great love of God, we pride ourselves in being family and welcome all to enthusiastically to our campus.    We strive to follow the famous quote of St. Francis to “preach the gospel at all times and when necessary use words”.
