    • Profile

      At Xavier, it is our intent to commit ourselves with passion and purpose. This is centred in our exceptional development of our students.

      Our passion is fuelled by our understanding that the experiences and opportunities we provide serve to thoughtfully challenge and nourish each person and unlock their unique gifts and potential. We deliver an incredibly broad range of learning experiences that are inspiring.

      Since 1878 at Xavier, and founded upon 500 years of Jesuit learning and faith communities around the globe, we have been developing our students in their intellectual, spiritual, moral, physical, social and emotional capacity. Xavier offers a nurturing space, valuing inclusiveness, wellbeing and teamwork, in which students strive to grow and discern, and to foster a passion for life and learning.

      Our inspiring learning experiences are bedded within our distinct Jesuit values and principles, and framed in our pursuit of human excellence. In combination, these distinctive features of a Xavier education have a genuine and sustaining impact in the formation of lives of great character and depth.

      We recognise that their gifts must be used not simply for the enrichment of self, but for the betterment of others. We recognise that their heart is most on fire when they are making a meaningful contribution to the world through service. In these ways, we seek to fulfil the Ignatian ideal of forming ‘men for others’ through acting in faith, for justice, and with dignity, humility and respect.

      We do not expect that our students will leave Xavier with all the answers, but that they will know the questions to ask. In this way, our hope is that they have the courage to pursue the questions that really count.
