Welcome to the Saint Francis Xavier Catholic school website. Founded in 1957, our preschool through 8th grade campus serves children from as far west as Magna to neighborhoods on the east bench, and cities as far up as North Salt Lake to beyond West Jordan in the south. I invite you to explore our website.
Our namesake, St. Francis Xavier, is known for his enthusiasm, joyfulness, passion for learning and action, and love for all people. These are exactly the gifts found in the excellent faculty, staff and parents at SFX. The school motto, “Love of God, love of others, love of self,” Christ’s call to love, is vibrant and living here. SFX is a special place!
We provide one class for each grade level. This is the advantage of being a small school, our teachers know every student individually. Such attention to the spiritual, academic, and social well being of each child creates an environment where children discover their inherent gifts and gain confidence in themselves. Parents and teachers together foster the loving yet challenging environment for our children to grow in faith, knowledge, wisdom, and compassion. This is the SFX difference - we are a close-knit community of faculty, alumni and families dedicated to nurturing our students, fostering strong home and school relationships and academic excellence, rooted in God’s love for all. We believe that the spiritual, academic, and social aspects of every child form the foundation for their lifetime.
If you are looking for a place to start your child in pre-school or for a new place of learning where your child can thrive, please schedule a tour to meet us in person. Our door is open to all. Come see for yourself why everyone says, “I love this community.”
I look forward to welcoming you to Saint Francis Xavier school.
Principal Saint Francis Xavier School
Saint Francis Xavier is a preschool through eighth grade elementary school, dedicated to educating our diverse ethnic and socioeconomic student population in partnership with family, Church, and community in a Catholic environment. Holistic development of the individual is guided by the teachings of the Catholic Church and promoted in a spiritual, academic, physical, emotional, aesthetic and social environment that emphasizes service to others.
"A community rooted in faith, family, and church. Serving students preschool through eighth grade"At Saint Francis Xavier we believe that love is the central Gospel message of Jesus Christ. We define love as any activity that makes us grow. We view love in three different dimensions: Love of God, Love of Others, Love of Self.
Love of God refers to an awareness of God working in our lives as Father and Creator.
Love of Others relates to the example of Jesus Christ in the commitment we make to others.
Love of Self is cultivated in a sense of security, identity, belonging, purpose and confidence in the Holy Spirit working in our lives.
