​Welcome to St. Francis College! I do hope you find our website enjoyable and informative.


Opening in São Paulo in 2003, St. Francis is an international school offering Brazilian and foreign pupils a first-rate education, which enables graduating students to enter excellent Brazilian and international universities.

St. Francis is the only full IB school in São Paulo - since 2008 it has offered all three International Baccalaureate programmes. We provide a safe educational environment and infrastructure, allowing students to realise their full potential in core academic subjects, the arts, and sport, while addressing their individual needs.

The taught curriculum encourages students to be successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors to their communities, and responsible citizens. Based on an interdisciplinary approach, we empower our pupils to be passionate lifelong learners, to achieve academic excellence and to be committed to impact the world positively.
