Dear St Francis Xavier Grade 12 Students and Families,


We hope this communication finds you well during these unprecedented times. As we approach the time of year when our grade 12 students would typically be celebrating their high school graduations, we are saddened our graduating class of 2020 cannot celebrate their many accomplishments and countless ways they have demonstrated loving hearts in our school communities over their many years at St Francis Xavier. 


Our local Chief Medical Officers of Health, who considered our request from a public health perspective, will not permit grade 12 graduations and end of year school events to take place. Therefore, it is with great disappointment that grade 12 graduation celebrations for the 2019-2020 school year will be postponed. We understand your grade 12 graduation is an important rite of passage, and we will make every attempt to ensure this opportunity is made available to you in the fall, should it be safe to do so. 


The CDSBEO will continue to follow the direction of our Chief Medical Officers of Health regarding social gatherings. Should restrictions be lifted in September to an extent that it would be deemed safe to hold a graduation celebration, this will be communicated to you, in advance, for planning purposes.


Our hope is that we will be able to provide the graduation celebration you so well deserve. We pray for all our CDSBEO families and ask you to continue practicing safe social/physical distancing.


God bless you and stay safe,


Ralph Sharples


Grad Celebrations

Grads and parents of Grads are asked to be patient – grad celebrations are in the works, but there are timelines and guidelines to which we must adhere.


Letter from the Minister

Dear STFX families,

The Minister of Education has asked that we share an important update with our school community. 

Please visit this link to view the letter from Minister of Education, Stephen Lecce: Letter from the Minister of Education – May 19, 2020 

We are currently working with local health officials to develop a plan for students to retrieve personal items from within their schools. We will be in touch in the coming days with more information on this. 

We appreciate your ongoing patience as we navigate these difficult times.

Dual Credits for 2020-2021

Attention all families of grade 10, 11 and 12 St. F. X. students:

Did you know that it is possible to take an on-campus dual-credit college course at Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus) or St. Lawrence College (Cornwall Campus) while still a student at St. Francis Xavier?

Taking a dual credit on a college campus is a fantastic opportunity for grade 11 and 12 students in all pathways – especially students considering college or apprenticeship after grade 12.

Information about dual credit opportunities at both colleges for Fall 2020, and on-campus dual credits in general, is now posted under the Student Services tab on our school website. Equal consideration deadlines close in early June so apply now!

The Parent Involvement Committee has put together a resource about distance learning. Please see the link below in order to use the embedded links within the resource.
