St Francis Xavier School

  • St. Francis Xavier School is a Catholic educational community where the values of the Gospel are proclaimed and experienced in all that we do.
  • By daily experiences of these Gospel values students will come to know themselves as they have been created by God and to experience an educational environment that allows them to maximize their potential spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically.
  • We strive to create a Catholic educational community in which the spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of each student are met within the scope of our educational program.
  • In our pursuit of academic excellence we provide our children with diverse educational opportunities, utilizing a variety of learning experiences so that we can educate each student for a life of intellectual inquiry, prayer, and service to the world through the Church.
  • In union with parents, we strive to discover and develop the unique gifts and talents of our children, moving them with dignity towards their Christian destiny.
