Welcome to St Francis Xavier’s College Hamilton

St. Francis Xavier's College is a comprehensive, co-educational senior high school serving the people of greater Newcastle. The motto 'Christ My Light' animates the life of the College. We are committed to providing a curriculum that caters for the diversity of student needs, one that is Catholic and imbued with gospel values. Such a curriculum is holistic (mind, body, spirit), challenging, appropriate and is concerned with excellence and a keen sense of personal and social responsibility.

As part of the Catholic School System we receive our mandate from the Bishop of Maitland-Newcastle and within that the College is administered according to Diocesan Education Policy and shaped by the Marist Tradition of Education.
