Principal's Message

Dear Students, Parents, Alumni/ae, Benefactors and Well Wishers,

A warm and hearty welcome to the new academic year 2024-2025!

At the very outset I’d like to express my deep appreciation to each one of you for choosing to be a part of the Xaverian family !

The vision and mission of this prestigious institution is to provide the best education to students, to form responsible and disciplined citizens who are socially committed and emotionally stable. We firmly believe in giving our learners strong values which will transform them into cultured, compassionate human beings with efficient working skills.

Holistic education is the hallmark at St. Xavier’s. Our sprawling campus buzzing with activities and events related to games and sports, visual and performing arts, culture and heritage, personality development, value education, environment, health education, all bear testimony to this. The excellent results obtained in academics and the accolades won in the field of sports and cultural activities drives us to explore further and aim higher.

With a perfect amalgamation of competent & dedicated faculty members, supportive administrative staff, state of the art infrastructure, and an experienced and efficient Management, we aspire to be an institution globally acclaimed for comprehensive education.

“To teach is to touch a life forever”, while we want our students to get maximum returns on the time they invest in their education here, we also want them to be making fond memories for a lifetime. This commitment to academics along with campus experience makes St. Xavier’s College the most sought-after in Goa.

As we venture into the second year of implementation of Courses under the New Education Policy 2020, it is our endeavour to build a robust curriculum that opens the door to global platforms for our students. Parents and guardians are our invaluable partners on this journey. My deep appreciation for the unwavering support and trust you have placed in us. A close student–teacher–parent collaboration can provide the strong foundation upon which our children can build their dreams.

Our students are gifted with unique talents and boundless potential. I encourage all our students to dare to dream big, set your goals high and work diligently to achieve them. Your dedication and hard work will pave the way for a bright and successful future.

St. Xavier’s College, with over 60 glorious years in the field of education, is one of the few colleges in the country which has been accredited in the 4th Cycle by NAAC, and now undergoing assessment for the 5th cycle. Our alumni/ae over the years have played an invaluable role in shaping the mosaic that defines their alma mater. Our partnership with our benefactors and well wishers, built on a foundation of shared values and common goals, has enabled St. Xavier’s to create the environment that fosters learning, growth and success.

Let us all come together once again with a renewed and fervent sense of belonging to make St. Xavier’s fly higher!
