Catholic Education

We teach the B.C. Curriculum as set out by the Ministry of Education, in a Christ-centered setting. We have an admission policy as per CISVA to ensure that all Catholics have an equal opportunity to enrol their children in a Catholic school.

Uniform Dress Code

St. Francis Xavier has an uniform policy in place to create a sense of community and foster respect. It is important that all students abide by the dress code.


Once admitted, families are required, as an active school community member, to participate in various activities of the school. A monetary levy is assessed to families who choose not to participate.
