Mission Statement

Xavier Catholic College Ballina is a Jesuit Companion School and a ministry of the St Francis Xavier Catholic Parish. Our mission is to provide a holistic Catholic education that is world-affirming, encourages a study of all reality and seeks wisdom. We strive to develop conscientious leaders and agents of change who are intellectually competent, open to growth, committed to justice, and compassionate in service to others for the greater glory of God. We work in the name of Jesus and in the spirit of Ignatius of Loyola for a faith that does justice.

Xavier Catholic College provides a truly Catholic education by aiming to:

  • provide an education based on sound spiritual and academic principles;
  • create an environment in which students feel secure enough to realise their potential in all areas of development to enable them to contribute positively to an ever-changing society;
  • develop a caring community that is specifically Christian, emphasising the strengths of self-discipline and fostering the growth of students and staff;
  • develop students’ understanding of their fellow students by promoting qualities of co-operation, tolerance of others, compassion; and
  • be witnesses to Christian values, thereby becoming an integral and important part of the Church and society.

It is our purpose to provide exceptional education and care for our students based on the Catholic faith.
