The San Francisco Convent was founded in the city of Leon in 1639 by the Reverend Brother Pedro de Zuniga. It was the first convent in the city.
On 7th September 1829 a government decree was issued which ended the recognition of religious orders, forcing the Franciscan Brothers to leave Nicaragua. In 1830, it was decreed that convent or monastery buildings should be used as educational establishments or for public benefit.
The first school to be opened under this decree was the Lancastrian School, founded on the site of the convent in 1854 by Doctor Gregorio Juarez. Years later, the building was abandoned as funds for maintenance of the school dried up and it became the home of beggars and the homeless.
