Faculdade de Filosofia, Ciências e Letras do Alto São Francisco
University description (as per official university website)
The FASF - Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Letters of St. Francis High was established in 16/12/1974, with recognition of courses through Decree 824/79 of 29.8.1979. Its implementation took from the dream of the then Diocesan Bishop Dom Belchior Light Joaquim da Silva Neto, having a College of Light that could meet all the Upper San Francisco. With the help of Archbishop Serafim Fernandes de Araújo, the dream came true in 1975 when the city won an extension of the PUC - Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais.
In 1985, FASF disengaged itself from the Catholic University (Ministerial Decree 891 of 11.11.1985) and was renamed the Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Letters of St. Francis High.
