"OUR ACADEMIC PHILOSOPHY
In the tradition of Catholic schools and Catholic education, St. Francis Xavier is committed to providing a safe and appropriate teaching and learning environment for students and staff. Upon entering our school, there is a shared feeling of having entered a special Catholic place created by God for the education of children. Central to the maintenance of this environment is a code of conduct based on individual self-respect and respect of others.
St. Francis Xavier observes:
Daily practice of Christian values and morals
Courtesy toward others
Respect for self, each other, and adults
Active parental involvement
Applying lessons to real-world experiences"
