St. Francis Xavier Catholic School, established in 1954, is a classical Catholic school. We organize our curriculum around historical time periods, and engage our students with a lovingly told story about their history. Students learn History, Religion, and Literature in integration to promote connection, unity, and discovery of truth. We embrace the time tested educational model of the Trivium of Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric by teaching rich content, training students to think, and guiding students to excellent expression. We join the Church’s brilliant tradition of attaining intellectual virtue through study. Our students learn how to be self guided learners through practices like close reading, reflection, logical thinking, analysis, synthesis, asking good questions, making connections, and memory. We choose student materials and content for their value in demonstrating the good, beautiful, and true. We focus on an education for life that is broad and foundational; our students learn Music, Latin, Art, and Physical Education. In all, students attain wisdom and virtue that enable them to have a joyful life of sacrificial love towards God and neighbor.
