Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"St Francis Xavier Parish's Philosophy of Discipline and Motivation:
Everyone at St. Francis Xavier is expected to do their very best as all times. Staff and students will all work together to help every person reach their fullest potential. Any behavior or action which helps someone grow and mature will be encouraged. Any behavior or action which interferes with another person's growth will be addressed.
The administrator has a key role in motivation and positive self-image and role model. S/he counsels, helps students set goals and succeed, and helps staff and parents seek solutions to student problems (academic and behavioral). S/he also supports the staff by assisting with severe or recurrent behavior problems.
Discipline as an on-going process:
Everyone connected with the parish must understand that discipline is a process, not a product. The staff must work together to achieve as much consistency as possible, and must be prepared to revise and adapt the procedures when they are ineffective.
