The Society of Jesus, a Catholic religious group, was founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. Since its inception, the members of the Society, popularly known as the 'Jesuits', have toiled in the field of education, among other things, and were called 'the Schoolmasters of Europe'. The Jesuits are inspired by a vision of humanity drawn from the life, teachings and personality of Jesus Christ. They manage educational and other service institutions throughout India and the rest of the world. St. Xavier's is one of the 3,900 Jesuit educational institutions in 70 countries around the world.
The school is named after St. Francis Xavier, who was one of the companions of Ignatius of Loyola.The distinctiveness of a Jesuit education stems from its deep-rooted history and a mission grounded in faith and intellectual rigour. Since its beginnings in the 16th century when the first Jesuit institution opened its doors in Messina, Sicily, in 1548 Jesuit education remains committed to academic excellence, service, leadership, and caring for the whole person
Jesuit education is holistic as it seeks the growth and development of the whole person encompassing the cognitive, affective, psychomotor and spiritual domains. The programmes and activities of the school are structured to facilitate the bodily, mental, spiritual and emotional well-being of the students and the development of their social and interpersonal skills.
