Xavier College is a Catholic Co-educational Secondary College conducted in the traditions of the Salesians of Don Bosco. The Salesians are a Congregation of the Church that have been involved in teaching and youth work in every part of the world for 150 years and pass on to the College their ethos and rich tradition in the education of young people. Xavier College is named after St Francis Xavier, a Spanish missionary of the 16th Century. His efforts to make Jesus meaningful to the people of Asia mark him as one of the great missionaries of the Church. St Francis Xavier is also the patron of the Archdiocese of Adelaide. This link with the local Church is valuable in establishing the identity of the College.

The motto for the College, “ONE IN CHRIST”, expresses our unity as children of the one God, regardless of our background, race or heritage. We are children of God, blessed by God, gifted by God and given an opportunity to use these gifts for all people. Xavier College is governed by a College Board which has the responsibility of approving the financial and development plans and policies that will guide the College. The Board is formed from the local faith community. Xavier College has a vision for Catholic Education that involves blending the technology of today with the expectations of tomorrow. All students attending the College will be well equipped to undertake the future in education or work, with a comprehensive and technological background.
