St. Xavier’s Sr. Sec. School, one among the pioneers of education in the country was established long before the independence in 1941, under the name “St. Mary’s Boys’ School” at Ghatgate by Rev. Fr. Ignatius, O.F.M. Cap. In July 1943, its management was entrusted to the Jesuit Fathers renowned for their educational work. The school was transferred to the present site and christened as “St. Xavier’s School” in January 1945, and later as “St. Xavier’s Sr. Sec. School.”
The school constituted by the dedicated and loyal faculty tries to enhance every student’s academic aptitude and discover their true potential. The ever approachable teachers frame a student’s mind and give it the best possible shape.
The school advocates an open view giving equal preference to academics, co-curricular activities, and sports. For the same purpose, the 18 acre land has been sagaciously planned such that it provides ‘well equipped Science and Computer Labs’ as well as ‘abundant ground area’ for sports such as Basketball, Swimming, Football, Cricket, etc.
Adapting to the changes and fulfilling the demands of time have been the key features of the school’s prosperity. The installation of smart classes has been successful in raising the students’ caliber through illustrative modules. Also, the establishment of the state-of-the-art Sports Complex simply states our ambition to soar high and reach the sky in the field of sports as well. The recent collaboration with University and an exchange program with Gefion Gymnasium in Denmark expose the students to a new horizon and enhance their decisions and plans about their careers.
With the right balance of scholastic and co-scholastic activities such as music and dance competitions, quizzes, elocutions, debates and exhibitions, the school indulges the students in practical learning and provides a platform to discover the veiled talents.
The school altogether moulds and shapes the students into responsible who are capable of confronting the world outside the premises prudently with a spirit of compassion and perseverance.
