From the Principal's Desk
Education is the process of bringing desirable change into the behaviour of a human being. It can be defined as the process of imparting or acquiring knowledge and habits through instruction or study. When learning is progressing towards goals that have been established in accordance with philosophy which has been defined for and is understood by the learner, it is called education.

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give , and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
It’s very interesting how quickly time passes. After spending two whole years at this truly prestigious institution , I can proudly say that Xavier’s offerred me the best of everything to extract my true potential . It is here that I met some of the most wonderful people I’ve come in contact with . The unforgettable memories of the days spent at Xavier’s with my friends and teachers I will forever cherish . It was the constant encouragement and support of my dedicated teachers that helped me to top the Goa board in the Arts stream with 97%.
St. Xavier’s nurtured both my soul and my mind and kindled in my heart the desire to learn and to strive for excellence.
For all this I am forever grateful to all those who helped me .
