Our mission for the College is to provide high-quality Catholic education where all are engaged in their learning, challenged and motivated to do their best. Our aim is to develop reflective young women and men of competence, conscience, compassion and commitment with an attitude of excellence and service. In keeping with the holistic nature of Catholic education, Xavier offers a wide range of curricular and co-curricular activities for students from Prep to Year 12, and excels in academic as well as sporting, cultural, and artistic endeavours. The College has achieved regional, state and national success in a wide variety of activities. Xavier is a Jesuit Partner School and belongs to the world-wide network of over 2000 Jesuit Educational institutions. Ignatian Spirituality is the basis for the ethos and culture of the College. A significant aspect of our curriculum is the access that students have to technology as a learning resource. ICT is seen as vital and integral to the teaching and learning processes used within the College. In 2013 a two session kindergarten was establised on site and is administerd by Catholic Early EdCare. Learning and teaching at Xavier Catholic College is learner-centred. Our aim is to cater for the learning needs and styles of all learners. Underpinning all that we do is the common belief that as a community we should work in partnership to "find Jesus in all things".
