Since 1828, the institution has empowered youth with the ability to overcome obstacles in the face of hopelessness. What was true in Venerable Lange’s time is still true today as Saint Frances Academy offers a Catholic-education via a traditional co-educational, college-preparatory curriculum. The school currently serves students in grades nine through twelve. An honors program is available to select students and all students complete a community service component.

Independently owned and operated by the Roman Catholic religious order of the Oblate Sisters of Providence, Saint Frances Academy is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education and is accredited by the Commission on Secondary Schools of the regional agency of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Declaration of Mission

We, the Oblate Sisters of Providence, faithful to our charism and the Spirituality of our Founders and trusting in Divine Providence, declare our mission is to embrace and to serve others with the same compassion with which Christ embraces us, sharing with all the unconditional love of the Suffering Jesus.

Statement of Charism

The original inspiration of the Oblate Sisters of Providence is that gift of the Spirit so evident in the life of Venerable Mary Lange. This charism enables us, with total trust in God’s Providence, to bring joy, healing and the liberating, redemptive love of the suffering Jesus to the victims of poverty, racism and injustice despite contradictions, prejudice and pain.
