St. Francis Xavier5

My school is St. Francis Xavier LaGrange Illinois. Our school motto is "We pray, we learn, we serve" and our children live this every day. Our students are academically challenged, our principal and teachers are dedicated and talented and the parental commitment is beyond words. My eldest started school at St. Francis in 2002 and we have been there ever since. It is the best decision we have ever made for their growth and development. We are truly blessed to be at a school where our children thrive.
We LOVE our school - Saint Francis Xavier has been an excellent experience academically, spiritually and otherwise (sports, arts, resource support, etc.). Each year at our annual All School Service Day I give thanks for the opportunity to have my children at such a special school. Our no cut sports program is also a special "gift", as well as many, many other available opportunities to help each child thrive!
St. Francis Xavier in La Grange is an excellent school! Our students excel in academics, athletics, and many other extracurricular activities. Our students thrive in a faith-filled, service-orientated environment supported by an outstanding community of teachers, staff and families.
I feel so blessed that we ended up at SFX! My kids are thriving there and I am constantly impressed by the teachers, programs and environment. It was a tough decision to send our kids to school here because the public schools in our area are so good and our taxes are so high, but it is worth it. I really feel like it's the best decision we have made for our children. The service program adds a lot to their eduction. SFX is helping the kids become caring, thoughtful and empathetic people. Every grade has a different service theme for the year and throughout the year they volunteer and talk about the theme. I am just so thrilled my kids can go to school at SFX.
