The Xavier Building Program

Xavier College is currently undergoing an unprecedented transformation of our structures and built form. It is an incredibly exciting period in our proud history.

In 2019, the College completed its new Strategic PlanXC150. You can read more about the plan here.

In 2020, Xavier announced a key restructure of the College, centred across two campuses.

From the commencement of 2024, Burke Hall would become a Kindergarten to Year 6 Junior School and the Senior Campus would embrace Years 7 and 8 students and become a Years 7 - 12 Campus. 

Master Plans

Consequently, a comprehensive Master Plan was developed and endorsed that provided the development blueprint for the College into the foreseeable future. Encompassing the entire footprint of the College, the Master Plans for the Junior School (Burke Hall) and the Senior School ensure that the strategic vision for Xavier is aligned with the purposeful development of the College's facilities.

Our Current Building Program

Fundamental to the strategic shift of moving Year 7 and 8 to the Senior Campus is the development of a state-of-the-art precinct for these students.

In May 2022, Xavier commenced construction on this exciting new development. Known as the Central Precinct Development Project, this comprehensive building program will also see extensive parking, drop-off and end-of-trip facilities under the Chapel Oval, immediately adjacent to the new Year 7-8 Kostka Building. 

This project commences the entire transformation of the Senior School at Xavier.

The following video provides an overview of the state-of-the-art Year 7&8 Kostka Building, to be completed for the beginning of 2024:
