Welcome to St. Francis de Sales Elementary School!

St. Francis de Sales is a Catholic school located in the Highgate region of South Burnaby. We serve and educate children from preschool to grade 7.

We also offer Before and After School Care.


As concerned Catholic educators our aim is to reinforce Catholicism in children and help them to develop spiritually, academically, artistically, morally, emotionally, socially and physically toward becoming caring people aware of their responsibility to God, to themselves, and to their fellow man.

At St. Francis de Sales School, we acknowledge the child’s primary educators are the parents. In co-operation with you, we wish to walk alongside you in this challenging task through a collaborative effort between home, school, and parish in the formation of our children.
