St. Xavier’s School Patna is an institute of Education established in 1940 to mold young men and women “for God and Country”, which is the motto of the school. The school is run by the Patna Province of the Society of Jesus, an international catholic religious order known for its commitment to education. The Jesuit tradition has a distinguished history spanning five centuries and has, in every age, pursued and delivered educational excellence. The passion for quality sets demanding standards for both students and faculty and encourages them to apply their well-learned lessons and skills to achieve new ideas, better solutions, and vital answers. Such commitment of the Society of Jesus to the cause of education has been one of the major factors accounting for the origin of St. Xavier’s Patna.

At this juncture I am proud to say that the Jesuit Fathers who are in the school make it a point to instill in the children academic excellence, as a sense of duty, discipline and above all moral values and character formation which are most essential requirements of the hour. Thus our school value system stresses on making every child morally strong and enabling them to become better citizens of tomorrow along with giving a multifaceted exposure to the students. Our strong commitment to human values and social justice stems from the Jesuit ideal of “faith that does justice.” In pursuit of that mission, St. Xavier’s students strive to live as men and women “for God and country”, seeking to achieve great things, not only for themselves, but also for other fellow human beings.

I hope and pray that the students of our school will seek great heights and keep the flag of St. Xavier’s flying high.

May St. Xavier, the patron saint of our school, intercede for all of us.  Amen.
