posted May 16, 2019, 8:24 AM by Sarah Schildknecht

Parents and guardians are cordially invited to our Graduation Mass to be held on Friday, May 24th at 8:00 a.m. in the school cafetorium.  This mass celebrates the transition of our graduating students as they move closer and closer to adulthood and invites God’s grace for this process.  The mass will be followed immediately by a reception with light refreshments. Fr. Bill Penney of Our Lady of the Visitation Parish will preside. You are most welcomed to join us in this celebration.  Please remember that parking at the school is always a challenge, so please plan accordingly.

Thank you to our Community Partners

St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School would like to thank our Community Partners - Frank's Bakery and Catering and Dairy Queen for supporting our SFX BEST BUDDIES program. Both have generously supported the students of SFX over the past two years, most recently for an orienteering activity which culminated in a frosty treat for all students. This could not be made possible without their contributions as well as the hard work of Ms. More, Ms. Gervais and Ms. Wainwright. This is truly an example of #BeCommunity #BeInnovative #BeWell.

posted Apr 26, 2019, 7:41 AM by Sarah Schildknecht


Last call for the Student/Yearbook Fee to be paid. If you have not purchased a yearbook, you have until May 1st, 2019 to do so. If you are not sure if you purchased a yearbook you can check your School Cash Online Account. The fee covers the yearbook, as well as offsetting the cost of different activities during the school year.


The student fee for families with one student is $45.00 (includes 1 yearbook). The Student fee for families with two students is $90.00 (includes two yearbooks). For each additional student in the family, the fee will increase by $20.00 and one yearbook. For example, the fee for three students will be $110.00 (which includes three yearbooks). Make sure to select the appropriate option for every family member at St. F.X. If this fee is not paid, the student will not receive a yearbook. There is no guarantee that yearbooks will be available for purchase at a later date.
