XAVIER COLLEGE


Xavier College was founded in 1878 and is a Jesuit school. The Senior Campus stands on 40 acres, 6 kilometres from the centre of Melbourne. Two Early and Middle Years campuses, Burke Hall and Kostka Hall, were founded in 1921 and 1937 respectively. Xavier offers a wide variety of subject areas and co-curricular activities, and all programs aim to foster young men of competence, conscience and compassion who will strive to make a difference in the wider world once they leave Xavier.

Facilities: Modern classrooms, science laboratories, art/graphics, drama, media and darkroom facilities, computer centres and resource centres on all campuses. Each Xavier campus has beautiful ovals which host a wide variety of sports. At the Senior Campus, the Stephenson Centre comprises double indoor basketball courts, a swimming pool, gymnasium, tennis courts and various multi-purpose rooms.

Curriculum
: Xavier offers a broad yet academic curriculum that aims to cater for the diverse needs of students. Xavier College’s VCE results have been consistently excellent with the Class of 2012 again achieving some of the top results
in Victoria:
• 7.9 per cent of students gained an ATAR of more than 99
• 27.5 per cent of students gained an ATAR of more than 95
• 40.4 per cent of students gained an ATAR of more than 90
• 67.9 per cent of students gained an ATAR of more than 80
• The Median ATAR for 2012 was 87.5, which means 50 per cent of students scored in the top 13 per cent of the State.
• Five students attained a perfect score of 99.95

While it rests with each class teacher to respond to each individual student’s learning requirements, enrichment and acceleration programs are also offered across the curriculum. LOTE programs are French, Italian, Japanese, Latin and Classical Greek. An extensive student exchange program supports language study, with partner schools in France, Italy, the USA and Japan. Information technology is an integral part of student learning across all subject areas at all levels.

Sport: Xavier offers an extremely wide range of sports including cricket, tennis, football, soccer, rowing, rugby, badminton, basketball, table tennis, athletics of all kinds, volleyball, golf, lawn bowls, hockey, swimming, martial arts, snow-sports and gymnastics.

Co-curricular activities: Music provides for extensive student involvement at Xavier. There are numerous groups, from large bands to small ensembles, choirs and orchestras, all of which perform publicly in competitions and concerts. Media, drama, chess and debating are also important and popular aspects of the co-curricular program. The Centre for Faith and Service runs many programs throughout the year which encourage students to reflect about themselves as individuals and to be active participants in the wider community, particularly with those who are disadvantaged or marginalised.

Student welfare programs
: A Jesuit education insists on the individual care of each person. The House and tutor systems are long-standing and highly regarded aspects of Xavier’s programs. Individual pastoral care, counselling and careers guidance are provided for students.

XAVIER COLLEGE


The boarding house is an integral and very important part of the Xavier College student community and has been since the school opened in 1878. Xavier College has a proud history of boarding and many boarders have gone on to make their mark in the wider community in a very wide range of careers including the law, accountancy, political life, medicine, teaching and farming. The Xavier College Boarding House prides itself on creating a community based on Catholic values where students and staff forge lasting bonds and where every student experiences a broad and challenging program. The boarders have a Jesuit chaplain and weekly celebrations of Mass are a feature of boarding life. The boarding staff is led by two members of the Xavier College teaching faculty who reside with their families on the campus. Their assistants are young men who are currently pursuing their own professional careers or tertiary studies, many of them past students of Xavier College. A resident nurse, supported by a team of health professionals, runs a well-equipped infirmary, which is available to boarders.
