Saint Francis College is a private, Catholic, coeducational college located in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, New York City. The college was founded by the Franciscan friars as St. Francis Academy in 1859 – the first ever private school in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn. The aim of the friars in establishing the school was to provide working class people with affordable, quality education. Many of the students who have graduated from the academy were the first ones to enter college in their family. This is a mission that Saint Francis College has striven to pursue all throughout its 150 years of existence.
Today, there are over 2,000 students enrolled at St. Francis College enrolled in undergraduate, graduate or adult programs. The college offers Bachelor’s, Master’s and certificate programs in a variety of specializations at an affordable cost.

In addition to a strong liberal arts core curriculum, the college offers over 70 programs and degrees from Accounting to Sports Management to Communication Arts, Education, and many more.
