About Us

Since 1923, St. Frances of Rome School has provided a Catholic education to the children of the Cicero, IL area. Our school has shown significant growth this past decade while maintaining its tradition of providing students with a well-rounded education that will prepare them for tomorrow. Our mission is to educate saints and scholars, and this year we serve 250 students who are on their way to becoming leaders in the community.

On Saturday, February 14, 2015, St. Frances of Rome School will welcome over 300 friends and supporters to the Mardi Gras Gala. This annual event is our largest fundraiser and brings together the entire community in support of the educational programs at our school. Last year’s event raised over $45,000. The proceeds raised help ensure that the opportunities we provide remain a viable option for all who desire it.

The event is only possible with support from the community. Enclosed you will find a listing of different ways that you can support the students and families of St. Frances of Rome. By donating an item to our auction, purchasing an advertisement in our program book, or becoming an event sponsor, you can help guarantee that St. Frances of Rome will remain a place that fosters success.
