Description

Saint Francis Xavier Catholic School is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are a small elementary school, serving families of all economic backgrounds. With one classroom per grade, our teachers know every student individually. Such attention to the spiritual, academic, and social well being of each child creates an environment where children discover their inherent gifts and gain confidence in themselves. Parents and teachers together foster the loving yet challenging environment for our children to grow in faith, knowledge, wisdom, and compassion. We believe that the spiritual, academic, and social aspects of every child form the foundation for their future achievements and success.

We believe a strong and effective board will support this school in ways that will allow this school to be sustainable and thrive for future generations. We are expanding our school board to broaden its connections with local corporations and businesses and to better reflect the communities outside of our school community. While a private Catholic school, we do not discriminate in enrollment on ability to pay but use a sliding tuition scale based on income.
