SFXHS Mission Statement:
St. Francis Xavier High School is a college preparatory high school, grades 9 - 12. This school's primary purpose is to prepare graduates as Catholic and other Christian leaders. St. Francis Xavier High School is a school that is Catholic in tradition and loyal to the Teaching Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. As a Christian community, St. Francis Xavier High School welcomes, appreciates, and respects the different racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds of all its students.
St. Francis Xavier High School nurtures the spiritual, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional development of each student, and the school inculcates a system of values within the traditional Judeo-Christian heritage. This is accomplished by stimulating student curiosity and critical thinking through rigorous academic work, teaching Catholic doctrine and tradition, studying scripture, and encouraging active participation in co-curricular activities, athletics, and Christian service.
In keeping with the mission of St. Francis Xavier High School, the curriculum is designed to prepare graduates for further study at a college or university. To this end, the core elements of the curriculum include all of the courses required by the State of South Carolina for admission to public colleges or universities.
