St. Francis Xavier is a parish primary school of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia comprising a Pre-K through 8th Grade program. St. Francis Xavier School works in partnership with “the first school of Christian life,” the family. United with our families, we foster a love for Jesus, His Church, His Sacraments and a life of prayer. We are pledged to maintain and constantly improve an excellent academic program that encourages our students to be devout Catholics who are well equipped intellectually for the vocation to which they are called by God.
St. Francis Xavier School is located at 24th and Wallace Streets just North of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in the Art Museum/Fairmount section of Philadelphia. Its close proximity to museums, the Schuylkill River and Fairmount Park provide a remarkable setting for educating students!
St. Francis is a part of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
