  • Welcome to St. Francis Xavier School!

    At St. Francis Xavier, our children receive the finest quality education rooted in the tradition and values of Catholic faith in a safe and respectful environment. We provide a challenging curriculum that is age-appropriate. Our children are happy and enjoy their learning environment. Our teachers are kind, caring and sensitive to the needs of their students. 

    Our 8th graders receive numerous scholarships from Bronx and Westchester Catholic High Schools as well as admissions into prestigious New York City Public High Schools such as Bronx High School of Science. Parents work collaboratively with Administration through the Home-School Association to create fun activities for all children. Our school will afford your child the very best Catholic education and experience. We hope that you will join our family here at St. Francis Xavier .

    • Dear St. Francis Xavier School Families:

      As you know, Governor Cuomo has ordered all schools closed for the remainder of the academic school year.  Click here to read Mr. Deegan's letter to our school families.  We are so sorry we will not have an opportunity to gather together again in our beautiful St. Francis Xavier School until the Fall.  Please rest assured we have plans for you to come in and pick up your child's belongings, to return school property, etc.  We are sorry some things must be postponed, such as First Penance, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, Moving Up Ceremonies, and Graduation.

      We will give you further information in the coming days regarding all these events, and we thank you for your patience as we work together to ensure our students continue to receive the finest Catholic education possible through our SFX Remote Learning Initiative.  Of course, our SFX Remote Learning Initiative will continue until the end of the academic school year, Friday, June 19. 

      Should you have any questions or concerns, of if I can be of any assistance to you, please email me at  marieoshea@sfxschool.net.

      God bless you and your family.   Take care and be well.

      All the best,
      Marie A. O'Shea
