Admissions

We appreciate your interest and look forward to meeting you.

Thank you for considering St. Francis Xavier as a possible school for your child. We look forward to meeting you at our Open House. Please take the time to peruse our website and learn about us through our various program offerings.

Due to the Covid DESE Guidelines and until further notice, we are unable to offer in-person tours or “spend-a-day” visits for potential families/students during the school day.  We encourage you to attend the Open House in January, view the virtual tour of our school building posted here on this page, and also visit the Classroom Google Sites to get a sense for the programs and instruction at the various grade levels in our school.

Please contact the school with any questions you may have about joining our school community after reviewing our website if you are unable to attend our Open House.  We appreciate your interest and look forward to meeting you.  Thank you.

Interested in submitting an application for your child(ren) to attend St. Francis Xavier School?

  • CURRENT families who are applying for an additional sibling (for Preschool through Gr. 8) may do so when re-enrollment occurs in January (Catholic Schools Week).  Please click here and log in using your FACTS Family Portal account.
  • NEW families–Enrollment opens to the public for the 2022-2023 school year on February 7, 2022. Please click here to begin our Online Application process on or after that date. We accept applications on a rolling basis. Your applications will be held in a waitlist queue.  We will reach out to applicants as soon as student slots are available.
    • Preschool 3 applicants should apply for the maximum number of days they could potentially need, to guarantee their child’s slot for the year as sections fill.
    • Families of students who submit an application to enter grades K-8, and are NEW to our school, will need to meet (at this time, virtually) with the administration prior to proceeding with enrollment. The school will reach out after you have submitted your application to set up a time to “meet”.  This will determine next steps in the acceptance process.  After receiving acceptance notification, parents will be provided information necessary to complete the enrollment process.

Kindergarten Readiness Assessment:

  • If entering Kindergarten, your child must also attend a Readiness Screening to be held in the Spring. (Please save-the-date: Friday, May 6, 2022).
