Welcome to St. Francis de Sales Catholic School

The History of St. Francis de Sales Catholic School

St. Francis de Sales Catholic School was established in 1949, when five Sisters of Mercy took a ferry across the Chesapeake Bay at the invitation of then pastor, Monsignor Eugene Stout, "in order plant" the first seeds of Catholic school education on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. As a result of hard work and great anticipation, ground was broken for the school on Monday, June 20, 1949. The school was to be located on Camden Avenue in Salisbury in one of the more upscale and established neighborhoods of the area. On April 2, 1950, the cornerstone was laid. St. Francis de Sales Catholic School was dedicated on July 9, 1950. The school was opened with one hundred five students in Grades 1-6 on September 6, 1950. In 1951 the school was enlarged and the enrollment was expanded to include Kindergarten through Grade 8. Our school currently serves families from the five lower Eastern Shore counties of Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, Dorchester in Maryland and Sussex County in Delaware, with a present enrollment of two hundred forty-nine students.

The vision and commitment which established Catholic education on the Eastern Shore of Maryland continues today in St. Francis de Sales Catholic School. A community of dedicated clergy, teachers, parents, and parishioners collaborate to give quality formative education to each student. In addition to expanding the facilities of the parish and allowing for improved programming, the new parish center also increases instructional space for the school. This building now includes a multi-purpose room that is used as a gymnasium. In the future it will include additional Middle School classrooms.
