Xavier Catholic School is a family-friendly community operating as a cohesive unit to support all students, families and staff. A very strong relationship exists between the school and parish with an emphasis on our family-focused, parish-based and school-supported Sacramental program.

Xavier Catholic School recognises that parents/guardians are the first educators of their children and we work together to support our families in this very important task. The school philosophy is based upon the beliefs of the Catholic Church and reflects the values, vision, policies and motto of Xavier Catholic School – ‘Growing in Wisdom.’
