Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.


Few things stand the test of time. Traditionalist education is about
creating affection for the things that last.

University Style

Individual course offerings allow students to customize their school experience and attend classes full or part time.


St. Francis Classical is the cooperative work of Christians in the Greater Pensacola area.
We offer instruction for children of likeminded homeschool families with students in grades K -12.



No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.


– The basis of culture –
We intentionally create time and space,
not for amusement, but for contemplation and artistry.

Reading focus

Why are we reading, if not in hope of beauty laid bare, life heightened and its deepest mysteries probed? […] Why are we reading if not in hope that the writer will magnify and dramatize our days, will illuminate and inspire us with wisdom, courage, and the possibility of meaningfulness, and will press upon our minds the deepest mysteries, so that we may feel again their majesty and power?
– Annie Dillard, The Writing Life
