Service to our community is an important part of St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School. It provides an opportunity for your child to think beyond himself or herself and gain awareness and appreciation for the needs of others.
These experiences increase your child’s social awareness, builds character, and reinforces the Gospel of Christ.
