"As an educator with high expectations for schools, communities, and fellow educators, I've been delighted with the care, attention, and spirit that are inherent in the SFX experience. SFX is an exceptional place with uncommon practices that nurture the whole child in ways that matter academically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally. The difference is in the staff's intention and capacity to make decisions that directly benefit each child; the result is worth every dime!"


- Nancy Van Erp, mom of Maya, Faith, Luke and Kate

Educating the Whole Child

St. Francis Xavier School is committed to educating the whole child


- academically, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually -  preparing students for the next levels of education and beyond. We believe it is essential to teach the values our students will need to be successful throughout their lives.



St. Francis Xavier School provides a strong, standards-based curriculum in all subject areas: religion, reading, math, language arts, science, social studies, spelling, phonics, music, physical education, computers and Spanish.



The small class sizes at St. Francis Xavier School allow teachers to truly get to know their students and to cultivate their self-confidence, self-worth, and self-esteem.



Through daily teachings, role modeling and mentoring, students’ social development is cultivated and strengthened.



Through recess, physical education class, and extracurricular opportunities,

St. Francis Xavier School encourages the physical activity essential to developing healthy bodies and minds.



Our Catholic faith is our constant guide and is embedded into the school day through prayer, religion class and participation in the weekly, student-led Mass.

Our Mission – St. Francis Xavier Catholic School is committed to providing students with a quality education emphasizing spiritual growth, academic excellence and community service.  We follow the teachings of Jesus by loving and respecting each person in everything we do and say.
