The High School's Philosophy of Education
Xavier School assists parents in the total formation of the Xaverian and his God-given talents, to become an active and productive member of the Chinese-Filipino community and his society. Its programs reflect the Jesuit traditions of academic excellence in a value-oriented environment.
Xavier High School commits to deliver quality educational experience that will equip students to face challenges in life. Its goal is to design learning experiences that facilitate development of skills, competencies, and attitudes. It provides educational opportunities that foster academic achievement, spiritual growth, social competence, personal productivity, computer literacy, and lifelong learning.

We need a "can-do, let's-try-it, how-can-we-make-this-happen culture."We insist on this paradigm because the task ahead will require creativity, flexibility, and synergy. The task challenges us, formators, to think critically and creatively as well as interact more spontaneously and generously.
This new culture fosters knowing, nurturing, and practicing our Xavier values. The goal is to create an environment that manifests, teaches, and encourages practice of the school values.
Implementation goals of the project include:
4. COLLABORATION WITH STAKEHOLDERS. We continue to articulate with and involve the supportive XSPA and vibrant AAXS in realization of the school's re-engineering effort to deliver quality educational service. The goals of this plan are:
