Why St. Francis Xavier School?

Graduates from St. Francis Xavier Catholic school stand at the threshold of young adulthood.  They have developed spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially, and physically in our nurturing environment.  During their years here, they have cultivated strengths, abilities, and characteristics that will serve them well throughout life. They know how to reason and write well, problem solve, study, and value education.  While here they have experienced the important lessons learned from success and failure, joy and disappointment, winning and losing. Our students leave here knowing that Christ is the reason for this school.  He is the unseen but, ever present teacher in our classrooms.  He is the model for our faculty and the inspiration for our students.
