St. Francis de Sales is a vibrant Kindergarten to Grade 8 Catholic elementary school located in beautiful Smiths Falls which is part of the C.D.S.B.E.O. (Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario).  Our school offers French Immersion beginning in Grade One.  We currently have an enrolment of 425 students and a staff of 40. Our students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of after school clubs as well as plenty of hands-on learning, centre-based programming. At St. Francis we strive to educate the heart, mind, body and soul of each and every student. Please note that we are a nut-free facility.
