St. Francis Xavier School is a comprehensive private school centered around the Roman Catholic faith. In keeping with the directives of the Bishops of the United States, St. Francis Xavier School, a living Faith Community, reaches out to the individual, extending the message of the Gospel. Students have the opportunity to thrive in well-equipped classrooms, being instructed by teachers who are licensed by the State of Ohio. Our curriculum meets Diocesan as well as State standards based on the best practices. St. Francis Xavier School was named the 2011 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the United States Department of Education.

St. Francis Xavier School which consists of 420 students in grades Preschool-Grade 8 provides enrichment opportunities through extracurricular activities and places an emphasis on service education. Differentiation is based on student needs and we provide a positive, safe learning environment to promote faith formation and spiritual, nurtured growth.

Despite the challenges of a global pandemic and a snowstorm in northeast Ohio, support for St. Francis Xavier School was in full force during this week’s #weGiveCatholic campaign. We are incredibly thankful for you, profoundly humbled by the outpouring of generosity, and completely awed by all of the good works that are to come for our school because we came together as one Navigator family on Giving Tuesday.
During our 24-hour campaign, 620 donors gave a total of $86,845!  Right up until the late hours of Tuesday night, generous hearts were supporting our school’s day-of-giving.  Please accept our heartfelt deep gratitude for all you did to make this a remarkable day for our Navigator community!

Thanks to you, students at St. Francis Xavier School continue to excel in academics and grow in faith despite the obstacles our world faces. Your recent generous donation was used to motivate and inspire staff, families, and friends of St. Francis Xavier School to raise over $132,000! Your gift will continue to position our school to rise above challenges and transform our students.

St. Francis Xavier School is inspired by the dedication and generosity to answer the call to support our school. These individuals and families have made it possible for our faculty and staff to go above and beyond to keep our students safe while providing a quality Catholic education focused on faith, academics, and service to influence an ever-changing world.

Thank you for sharing in our passion, trusting in our commitment, and joining in our vision of excellence and faith in education.
