When the local community expressed a requirement for a new Catholic secondary school to meet the needs of educating the children of the rapidly expanding population of the outer South-Eastern suburbs and the Western reaches of Gippsland. In response to this need St Francis Xavier College secured a magnificent site for the establishment of the Officer Campus.
In 2012 our Officer Campus was opened. Situated on the northern side of the intersection of Princes Highway and Cardinia Road in Officer, this 8 hectare (20 acre) site is easily accessed via car, bicycle, train, bus or foot.
The Officer campus is a strong community that aims to work collaboratively. We invite all members of our Campus community to create and be a part of a contemporary learning culture that is personalised, responsive to the needs of students, and views parents as partners in the learning design.
Our Campus priorities align to our College goals where we are seeking to establish a culture of excellence in student achievement and character. Our programs focus on differentiation and increasing student engagement, establishing positive learning partnerships, and to be a community of staff and students with growth mindsets.
A feature of the Officer campus are the new and contemporary learning facilities. We are excited to be offering our students the opportunity to utilise contemporary learning spaces that enable students to explore, create and collaborate. Many of the facilities provide open, flexible and adaptable learning spaces that are designed to be multi-disciplinary and communal.
