About Xavier School

Xavier School (光啓学校) is a Jesuit Catholic college preparatory school with a distinct Chinese and Filipino character. Founded and managed by the Society of Jesus, the school is a K-12 school, offering a three-level curriculum: Early Education, Grade School, and High School.

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 a 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.

Combining the best of tradition with innovation, Xavier School has launched new programs to promote its thrusts of Innovation, Internationalization, and Information Technology.
Among its pioneering efforts are the six-week China Overseas Programs, One2One student-centered learning, technology-enhanced instruction, to mention a few.

In its pursuit of excellence, Xavier School benchmarks its standards locally with the Jesuit Basic Education Commission, and internationally, through Singapore’s International Primary School Leaving Examination (iPSLE), the US College Board’s Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT), and Beijing’s Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (汉语水平考试 / HSK).

Xavier School is PAASCU Level 3 Certified, the highest accreditation given by the Philippine Association of Accrediting Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) to basic education institutions.

Xavier School is also an IB World School, authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), a rigorous and innovative academic program recognized by universities worldwide.

Great community of students, teachers, staff, parents. Expensive but top quality education, but has financial aid for those who want to study here but can't afford the tuition. Excellent facilities aid learning different subjects, which include Chinese. Students go on to become local and international leaders in different fields.

I'm not from Xavier. But, I've worked with a lot of alumni from this school in different types of businesses and they are all top notch. I will be enrolling my kids to this school.

The tuition is quite high, yet the facilities are mediocre at best.
