St. Francis Xavier School, an integral part of St. Francis Xavier Parish, is a Catholic school under the auspices of the Archdiocese of New York and the mandates of the City and State of New York.

St. Francis Xavier School strives to encompass all facets of Christian living in its education of the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, morally, emotionally, culturally, and physically. We work to create an environment that encourages the learning potential of every student through a well-rounded curriculum. Our goal is to foster an atmosphere that allows children to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
We believe parents are the first educators and seek a continued partnership for success. Our philosophy insures a solid Christian education. We value and respect the cultural and academic diversity of the school community and hold dear the dignity of each child as a member of the Family of Jesus. St. Francis Xavier School, in accordance with the mission prescribed by the Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of New York, shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, and ethnic origin in administration of education policies, admission policies, and scholarships.

In collaborative efforts with parents, the administration, faculty, and staff of St. Francis of Xavier School, we will reinforce the philosophy on a daily basis.
