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 second-century Father of the Church. A wise and holy man, he maintained that the glory of God is a person fully formed, and so do we.
We offer a comprehensive school experience to young people informed by the Scriptures, modelled on Christ’s love and intent on working in partnership with families. We offer a learning pathway suited to each student through our differentiated curriculum and diverse program offerings. Our focus is on equipping young people to be ready to play their part in the world. Having developed their skills and knowledge, explored their talents and experienced acceptance, they have the potential to really make a difference.
We offer such a complete experience by investing in high quality people and facilities, encouraging positive relationships between students and staff, and consistently expressing a rigorous expectation of personal excellence. We believe that we can all exceed our potential through diligence and courage.
An education at St Francis Xavier College invites 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.
The College acknowledges Australia’s democratic values: the freedoms of religion, speech and association; equal rights for all; openness and tolerance; the rule of law; and respect for elected government. In all of these, we see the message of the love of God and strive to be neighbours, as Jesus taught us.
Via, Veritas et Vita.
