Why St. Francis Xavier School?

A new school building was dedicated on May 7, 2023, with first classes beginning in August 2023. The 30,000-square-foot school campus is self-contained with modern safety and security measures.

Each classroom includes the latest technology for teachers and students, enabling us to emphasize Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) educational focus that receives so much deserved attention in today's education conversations. However, SFX has improved upon this formula to include Religion and the Arts in its holistic STREAM curriculum.

The new campus with this STREAM ideal features a new advanced library, computer and science labs, art and music rooms, a secure playground, and a combination lunch room and gym with a stage for student performances, parent activities, and school meetings

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.
