Who we are

St. Francis College is an international school which strives for excellence, providing a warm and friendly community committed to the International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophy. We offer a challenging educational programme with assessment through inquiry-based instruction highly focused on the academic and personal development of every pupil. St. Francis College is currently the only school in São Paulo to offer the IB Continuum through its Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme.


"Having been at St. Francis for nearly 15 years, I have had the privilege of working throughout these years with the most dedicated teachers, administrators and staff possible. This is a school that is truly committed to providing a quality and caring education for children. It is so rewarding to watch students gain skills and confidence through exploration and experimentation!"
