Welcome to Pope Francis Preparatory School

We’re glad you’ve decided to learn more about our community and what makes PFPS a great place to learn! If you are a parent or you know of a relative, neighbor or friend who would be interested in attending Pope Francis, we hope you will find the information provided useful.

Pope Francis Preparatory School blends the tradition of our legacy schools, Cathedral and Holyoke Catholic, to offer academically challenging courses and extracurricular activities in a faith-based and community service-oriented environment. Our graduates have gone on to attend a number of prestigious schools and universities including: Boston College, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Syracuse University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Yale University to name a few.

I encourage you to download our Shadow Form to become a Cardinal for a day and discover what it means to be a Pope Francis Preparatory School student. During a shadow day, you will tour the school, attend classes and meet current PFPS students. Visit our Academics and About Us pages to learn more about our course selection and why attending Pope Francis is the right decision for so many students in the Pioneer Valley.

Please feel free to email the Admissions Office at arivers@popefrancisprep.org with any questions, to schedule your shadow visit, or to learn more about the school Admissions process. I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
