Welcome to St Francis Xavier, Box Hill
Our school is inspired by the model of St Francis Xavier, a man who served others and spent his time bringing the good news of Jesus to those he encountered. This is our mission too, to educate our young people to understand the values modelled by Jesus of trust, respect, forgiveness and care and live these out daily.
Our staff work collaboratively to plan learning experiences that cater for the needs of every student in our care. We work in teams to analyse student data and bring this together with what we know and understand about our students to ensure that our teaching is targeted and purposeful, always aimed at supporting the student to grow and progress. This sits within our commitment to the wellbeing of each student, knowing that when students are happy, settled and secure at school, learning flows naturally.
Our school community embraces diversity and values the partnership we have with each family. We work with our families to enhance the learning of every student and value the contributions our families make to the life of the school through the School Advisory Council, the Parents and Friends Association, classroom helpers and volunteering.
We look forward to partnering with you as your child commences their learning journey here with us, and know that you will grow to love this community as much as we do.

St Francis Xavier is a school that operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them. Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures. More information on MACS is available at macs.vic.edu.au.
