About the School SFX - Vin Feeney

 St Francis Xavier College is an educative and supportive Catholic community. We have a clear purpose: the development of a person of competence, conscience and compassion formed in the Christian tradition; one who is guided by a sense of hope and self-belief and who will be of service in the world. We recognize God’s presence in our lives by celebrating and pursuing personal excellence and by living courageously with optimism and respect for all.   

St Francis Xavier College is a three Campus College (Years 7 – 9 at Berwick and Officer and Years 10 – 12 at Beaconsfield) offering a range of options for students including a wide selection of subjects at VCE, VET and VCAL courses.    

As an RTO (Registered Training Organisation) the College operates a wide variety of VET courses and Pathway Courses (off campus). These courses are for students who wish to go into an apprenticeship or continue a certificate after completing their VCE.  VCAL is a ‘hands on’ option for senior students.  

At the junior level Year 7 students are placed into Core Groups and remain together for the whole year.  This allows students to develop and gain confidence within a small group.  The College has an extensive Education Support Program available for students with Learning Needs. 

Extra-curricular activities include: musical productions; sporting competition, cultural experiences and a camps program including Outward Bound at Year 9. Senior students can choose to participate in skiing, international tours and dramatic performance. 

For Year 8 and 9 students we offer a Healthy Relationships Day (The Reach Foundation), study skills seminars and aerobics competitions.  All students take part in fundraising activities (The Ruben Centre Appeal, Caritas Australia, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Benenson Society).     

We have an extensive Pastoral Care system which includes vertical Care Groups within our House System.  House Coordinators take general responsibility for their House and Care Group Teachers take on the pastoral responsibility for students.  Students remain within their House for the entirety of their time at the College.
