Xavier School Nuvali is a Catholic, Jesuit, college-preparatory school with a distinct Chinese-Filipino character. It is founded and managed by the Society of Jesus. Xavier School’s educational philosophy is based on the 400-year old tradition of Jesuit education - the formation of an individual who is a product of liberal education, with a special concern for the development of personal discipline, a drive for the pursuit of academic excellence, and a commitment to service.
The school imparts values that can be summarized into the 6 C’s---Competence, Character, Conscience, Compassion, Culture, and Community, for Xaverians to lead commendable lives of service to their community and the society in general.
Christian Life & Education (CLE) is a mandatory subject for all grade levels. Students also have formation, recollection, outreach, and other activities conducted by the Campus Ministry Office. As part of the pastoral care exercised by the Xavier School Jesuit Community, the Jesuits visit XSN for regular masses, confessions, and interaction with students. Jesuits from other communities also visit the campus.
The first batch of XSN graduates are enrolled in the following colleges/ universities: Ateneo de Manila University, University of the Philippines, De La Salle University, University of Sto. Tomas, Mapua University, University of Asia and the Pacific, San Beda University, Enderun College, among others.
By school year 2020-2021, Xavier School Nuvali will offer three strands: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), Accounting and Business Management (ABM), and Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS).
Since its founding, Xavier School has provided assistance to students who could not afford Xavier education. The Xavier School Educational and Trust Fund (XSETF) was founded on the principle that “no student who is otherwise qualified should be deprived of a Xavier education for financial reasons alone.” Application may be done through the Registrar’s Office.
