Welcome to St Francis Xavier College, a Catholic school serving families from the parishes of Berwick, Iona-Maryknoll, Koo Wee Rup, Narre Warren and Pakenham. We provide Catholic education for the municipalities of Cardinia and Casey.
Our reach is broad. Our mission is clear.
St Iranaeus was a 2nd century Father of the Church. A wise and holy man. He maintained that the glory of God is a person fully formed.
So do we.
As such St Francis Xavier College offers a comprehensive school experience to young people informed by the scriptures, modelled on Christ’s love and intent on working in partnership with families. Our aim is to see our students leave us ready to play their part in the world as persons of competence, conscience and compassion formed in the Christian tradition.
We do this by placing our trust in Jesus, our confidence in positive relationships between students and staff, a reliance on a rigorous expectation of personal excellence and a belief that we can all exceed our potential through diligence and courage.
An education St Francis Xavier-style invites our young people to consider others and not just themselves as they strive to understand their responsibility to make the most of their gifts as part of a learning community.
At St Francis Xavier College we acknowledge Australia’s democratic values; the principles of freedom of religion, of speech and of association, equal rights for all, the values of openness and tolerance, the rule of the law and respect for elected government.
For in all of these we see the message of the love of God and of neighbour that Jesus taught us.
