St Xavier's School (Est-1951) was the first academic institution established by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in Nepal. Currently, it consists of student cohorts in twelve levels from Grade 1 to Grade 12 and operates an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school under a single administration. One of the oldest private schools in the country, St. Xavier's has historically been considered an inclusive institution for students from all walks of life.
The alumni of this institution have traditionally occupied high ranking positions within the government, bureaucracy, military or in other distinguished professions nationwide.
Inspired by the vision of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the inspirational documents of Society of Jesus we aim at creating a just world by educating our students to be Conscientious, Competent, Committed and Compassionate individuals who are people for and with others
We the staff of St.Xavier's School Jawlakhel, are a community of persons who devote ourselves to human excellence, spiritual growth and social justice for the active service of God, Nepal and human community.
