ST. FRANCIS XAVIER is a vibrant, Blue Ribbon Catholic School bolstered by a collaborative faculty, an engaged parent network, progressive leadership and motivated learners. Our values are rooted in the example set by Saint Francis Xavier, a Jesuit missionary who operated by the mantra “that all may be one.” St. Francis strives to educate the whole child in a faith-based environment by honoring the gifts of its students in their many forms. Graduates leave eager to engage the world and make their mark for the betterment of humankind. SFX promotes service and compassion, counteracting a culture of entitlement that might otherwise take root in a well-resourced community.  In turn, school families challenge St. Francis to be the best it can be through the careful balance of a values-based philosophy with an exceptional and highly engaging academic experience.
