Our Context: Employment at Xavier College
Xavier is a leading Catholic, independent school in the Jesuit tradition. Located in Kew, Melbourne, the College has two beautiful campuses – one at Burke Hall (off Studley Park Road) that hosts a co-educational Kindergarten and enrols boys from Prep to Year 8, and the other being the Senior Campus (on Barkers Rd) that offers day and boarding education for boys from Years 9-12.
In 2024, all Years 7 and 8 students will be located on the Senior Campus site in a new state-of-the-art learning precinct. More details on this exciting project can be found here. Both campuses are spacious and well facilitated to offer excellent learning opportunities for our students.
Our most important assets though, are our people … the students and families that we serve, the proud Alumni and supporters of the College, and especially our teaching and professional staff who bring our inspiring programs to life.
At Xavier, we aspire to form exceptional graduates through inspiring learning experiences and our distinct Jesuit character. This Jesuit context provides an exceptional context for the holistic growth of our students and the engagement of all in our Xavier Family. We strive to be men and women for and with others who desire to make a difference in our world.
More details on our Strategic Plan XC150 that frames our intentions can be found here.
“As a College, we strive to be curious and passionate about pursuing the possible. While we are living through an era of significant turmoil and challenge, it is also a period of enormous potential, a time when we have both the opportunity and the responsibility to make a difference for, and be more considerate of, the good of others and our planet. We wish to provide an education for Xaverians that honours this opportunity and responsibility.”
