St. Francis Xavier Schools Educational Mission is to guide our students to become Catholics who know and live their faith.
We are committed to providing opportunities for the well-balanced development of the while child in all areas of intelligence: spiritual, academic, physical, social, and aesthetic.
They will have the skills to be good communicators, problem solvers, and life-long learners.
Self-discipline is our aim for the children. Students will be guided to do what is right, because it is right, and because of the satisfaction one achieves as a result.
For the good of all, limits must be set. Thus, an environment is created where the child learns to handle his/her freedom appropriately.
School rules will be enforced in a firm but respectful manner reflecting the philosophy of St. Francis Xavier School.
Minor infractions will be dealt with at school through the teacher and the principal.
In more serious matters, parents will be consulted. The discipline proposed should be commensurate with the offense.
