Our Story

The college takes its name from St Francis Xavier, a Jesuit priest who evangelised Asia and the Pacific. Together with Mary Help of Christians, he is the patron saint of Australia. St Francis studied at the University of Paris where he met St Ignatius of Loyola and became one of the seven who founded the Society of Jesus – the Jesuits. They believed that God was to be found in all things and that the world must be stayed in, not withdrawn from and that all human endeavour could be sanctified for the greater glory of God. St Francis is considered to be one of the greatest missionaries and evangelists of the Church. In naming the college, Archbishop John Bathersby noted the significance of the evangelising role that the college would assume in the lives of all who are influenced by its presence in Hervey Bay.

About Us

In addition to a new 170 seat state of the art theatre and Senior facilities for Science, Design Technology, Hospitality, Visual Art, Physical Education and Performing Arts, the college boasts a modern Mitec Centre (Middle School Technology). This provides separate Science, Hospitality, Art and Design Technology facilities for use in the Middle School. Wireless Internet and computer technology is available to all areas of the College.

A purpose built “Early Years Precinct” provides a caring and nurturing learning environment. A Kindergarten is operated by Centacare.
In addition to the ACARA National Curriculum, students in Yr 8 and 9 study units in Religious Education, Arts, Hospitality, Design Technology and Language. In Year 10, students have the choice of a variety of introductory QSA senior units in trimester modules in preparation for Yr 11 & 12. Information Technology is integrated across all learning areas.
Our mission for the College is to provide a high quality education within our Catholic tradition where all are engaged in their learning, challenged and motivated to do their best.

Our aim is to assist the formation of our students to become young men and women of competence, conscience and compassion with an attitude of excellence and service.
