ST. FRANCIS CATHOLIC SECONDARY SCHOOL

St. Francis Catholic Secondary School (SFCSS), Idimu, is a Catholic school run by the North-West Africa Province of the Society of Jesus. It was founded in 1990 by a Jesuit priest, Fr. Francis Cusimano, S.J. We foster social interaction among students which provides them the platform to discover new passions that lead them to self-discovery of their God-given talents and gifts.

The Jesuit tradition prizes the life of the mind, viewing it as a path to the integration of the intellectual and moral aspects of personal and social life. This implies that, apart from the cutting-edge catholic education, the school upholds the catholic lifestyle and moral standards.
