St. Francis Xavier School has been educating children along the North Shore for over 100 years.
 Our mission is to create a community of faith in action and excellence in academics.
 We partner with the church and with our parish families to provide our students with an environment of care and concern, high academic and social expectations, and role models to guide their actions and life choices.
 The school's academic and religious curriculum is complemented by the latest in computer and SMART Board technology, a new Science Lab, and art studio, and a newly renovated library.
 Our teachers are among the most highly trained in the area and fully 75% hold advanced degrees and endorsements.
 They are creative, dedicated and committed to the parish.
 We have high expectations for our students and our size allows us to individualize instruction to a rare degree.
 Also, because we are pre K-8, students of different ages interact often and well.
 Through the course of their time at SFX, students will grow from being the youngest in the building to being the oldest, and will understand and embrace changing expectations and responsibilities.
