About Us

St. Francis de Sales School is an all-male Catholic college preparatory school in Toledo, Ohio serving grades 7-12. Founded in 1955 by the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, we promote the academic, spiritual, social, and physical development of our students. We form leaders in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales, who challenges us to "be who we are and be that well."

Be who you are and be that well, in order to serve the Master Craftsman whose handiwork you are.St. Francis de Sales

A School Built on Salesian Spirituality

The term Salesian refers to the teachings of St. Francis de Sales and his spirituality.  Salesian Spirituality developed out of St. Francis de Sales' experience as a bishop and spiritual advisor to people interested in living their faith in daily life. Many of his teachings are collected in his classic work, Introduction to the Devout Life. St. Francis de Sales believed in the universal call to holiness. Everyone is called to be holy, but holiness looks different for each person. Salesian Spirituality continues to guide all those who seek to "Live Jesus."

SFS has 667 students enrolled in Grades 7-12 as of October 18, 2023.

All Faculty and Staff, as well as volunteers who have direct contact with students, are required to pass the appropriate background checks, and courses outlined in this policy.
