Xavier School Nuvali opened its doors to the South community in 2012. Driven by the desire of Fr. Ismael Zuloaga, the longest serving school director of Xavier School, to bring Xavier education to more people, the pioneering group of teachers led by principal Mrs. Arlene Choo welcomed the school’s first students, a diverse group of young boys and girls who would grow as the school does. The co-educational system allows the students to learn with and from each other.

A primary mandate of the school is to offer financial assistance to a target 25% of the school population.

While the objective makes the Xavier education accessible to a greater number of students from lower income groups, the benefits are far from one-sided. The presence of these scholars is expected to have a transformative influence on the culture of the school as a whole, promoting a greater sense of solidarity and understanding. On the first year of operations, 21% of the students were accepted on financial assistance.

Now on its seventh year of operation, the school continues to share with the South community not only the Xavier brand of education but also core Jesuit values such as magis (the value of choosing the more loving option), cura personalis (personal care), and doing things ad majorem Dei gloriam (for the greater glory of God). It has sent off its first batch of graduates to some of the country’s top universities and colleges in March 2018.

The exponential growth in population has necessitated an expansion in the number of facilities as well. The 15-hectare campus is situated in the heart of Nuvali, Ayala Land’s eco-community development in Calamba, Laguna. Two of the school’s six buildings are the Henry S. Sy Primary Building and the Ramon S. Ang High School Building, both housing the school’s various classrooms and laboratories.

The campus master plan and school facilities were designed on the principle of sustainability.

The buildings use eco-friendly materials and fixtures, natural and energy-efficient lighting, and a rainwater collection and recycling system. More importantly, the learning spaces are designed to develop 21st-century skills. Classrooms and activity areas are equipped with the proper IT infrastructure to allow students access to a whole world of resources. This will support the school’s One2One computer-based approach that promotes self-directed learning.


Other facilities include a library equipped with books, manipulatives, teacher resources, educational toys, and computers for student use; two infirmaries serviced by The Medical City Southern Luzon; multipurpose halls for school functions and theatrical performances; sports facilities such as a football field, basketball and volleyball courts, and, upon completion of the new sports center, a swimming pool.
