"Educate them in the Christian way of Life."  ~ St. Francis Xavier




The mission of St. Francis Xavier School is to pass on the Gospel values and rich heritage of the Catholic faith, to assist parents in the spiritual, moral, and academic education of their children, and to prepare our students to be faith-filled members of the Church, community, and nation.
