A NATIONAL BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE!
U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, announced today that St. Francis Xavier School has been recognized as a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence!
St. Francis Xavier School was one of only 50 private schools nationwide to receive this prestigious award! Of the nearly 135,000 public and private schools in the United States, fewer than 6% have received the honor since the Blue Ribbon program began in 1982.

We Pray, We Learn, We Serve
Welcome to St. Francis Xavier Parish Day School
Our school serves students from pre-school age through grade 8, including an all-day kindergarten class. We have more than 600 students and two campuses. Main Campus is home for the 2nd through 8th grades. Pre-schoolers, kindergartners, and 1st graders enjoy their own dedicated staff and facilities at our East Campus, located at Catherine and Bell Avenues.
The curriculum of St. Francis Xavier School meets the requirements set forth by both the State of Illinois and the Archdiocese of Chicago's Office of Catholic Education. Additionally, our students are offered a wide variety of opportunities to develop social and leadership skills through many programs beyond the classroom.
We pray, we learn, we serve.
Take a look inside at the many ways the SFX students, parents, faculty, and staff live that mission.
