The School Management
St. Xavier’s School is run by the Society of Jesus, an international Christian religious order that follows the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, founded by Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. The members of the Society are popularly known as the Jesuits. The Society is headquartered in Rome. The Jesuits are primarily known for their work in education (like founding schools, colleges, universities and seminaries), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits, and for their missionary efforts in human rights and social justice. They are one of the largest educational bodies in the world. From their humble beginning in Europe in 1540 they have etched their presence in 112 nations on six continents. Today perhaps the best known education in India has been imparted by the Jesuits. More than 250,000 students belonging to every religious, linguistic and socio-economic group receive their education in the Jesuit educational institutions all across the country.
Xavier’s – A True Catholic School:
St. Xavier’s is a Christian minority school. It not only gives preferential admission to the Christian/Catholic students but also makes a constant and sincere effort to inculcate Christian ethos and a secular outlook in its students. While all the students are provided with regular value education, special attention is provided to the Christian/Catholic students in imparting Catechism classes. Without exception all Xaverians imbibe the Gospel values while at school and become agents of social changes in their later life.
St. Xavier’s, Bhiwadi was started as Hindi Medium school for up to standard 5 in 1993 to cater the poor and the migrant workers. However, as per the demand of industrial staff members, the school was upgraded to standard 10 and got affiliation from CBSE and became English medium school in the year 2000. Later on in the year 2010 school was upgraded to senior secondary and Today it has become a true neighborhood school, educating 1250 students from the Prep Department to Class 12. Each class has 3 sections, each section having an ideal number of 40 students.
At present the school has 48 staff in all the three departments- the Senior, the Junior and the Prep. Out of the 48 staff members 37 are ladies and 11 gents. A true Maternal school!

Prayer is powerful! It ﬁlls the earth with mercy, it makes the Divine clemency pass from generation to generation; right along the course of the centuries wonderful works have been achieved through prayer. – Francis Xavier
When King John of Portugal and Pope Paul III desired to send missionaries to the East, Francis Xavier became the man of destiny. Given only a day’s notice, he left for Lisbon, and setting sail for India, reached Goa on 6 May 1542.
“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
The world today has no dearth of knowledge, data and statistics – everything lights up on the screen in a desired format at the click of the mouse, yet, ignorance has its tentacles everywhere in various forms. Education is the only tool to combat ignorance and provide the required confidence march into a future that is full of uncertainty and unknown challenges.
St. Xavier’s School, Bhiwadi, believes in empowering young minds so that they can be change makers in the society, and in turn become instruments of dispelling the darkness of ignorance. The college believes in shaping holistic character to enhance competence which would be meaningless without compassion in a world that is stricken with violence, war, hatred and distrust. St. Xavier’s school is a place where every talent is nurtured, every voice is heard, every pulse is valued, and every thought deliberated upon.
As a Jesuit institution, we at Xavier’s believe in striking a fine balance between grooming experts in their respective fields and nurturing humane qualities to add positive strokes in the canvass of this world. Every aspect of the college is committed to journeying with young minds who join us, to light a zeal for humankind and our common home, Mother Earth. We believe in creating and maintaining vertical relationship with the divine and horizontal with brothers and sisters across the globe, valuing ecology, cherishing diversity and growing sustainably together for creating a future where we would be able to significantly and positively contribute for our progeny.
Ensuring and inclusive environment we welcome each and every seeking individual to feel empowered and enriched on their journey towards becoming enlightened citizens of the world to create a better future. Xavier’s is a place where we encourage every learner to Experience, Engage, Embrace and Evolve.
