Educational Philosophy

At Xavier Academy, we embrace Relational Learning as our core educational philosophy. We believe that building strong relationships between teachers and students is essential to creating a positive and effective learning environment. Our approach reimagines the traditional classroom dynamic, shifting the teacher’s role from one of authority to that of a trusted guide. 

In a Relational Learning environment, our teachers act as both mentors and orienteers, assisting in a student’s personal growth and maintaining the trajectory of their course of study. This requires active engagement with each student, continuously monitoring their needs, interests, and well-being. By building relationships with students, our teachers can provide academic, social, and personal support all at the same time. 

We believe that every student is unique and that our teachers must meet them where they are. This means designing personalized projects, encouraging individual passions, and fostering collaboration with others in the classroom. By creating a supportive and inclusive learning environment, our students can thrive both academically and personally. 

Hybrid Learning

At Xavier Academy, we believe in providing a flexible and adaptable approach to education that meets the needs of each individual student. With our commitment to hybrid learning, students can seamlessly participate in both in-person and online learning, without committing to one or the other. Our classrooms are thoughtfully arranged with technology such as large screen monitors, high-end cameras, microphones, and digital whiteboards, to allow communication and collaboration between students online and in-person. Each academic and elective classroom is equipped with technology, our students have access to a wide range of online resources such as textbooks, news sources, research sites, virtual labs, and academic databases to supplement their learning. Our goal is to provide a dynamic and engaging learning environment that combines the best of traditional classroom instruction with the flexibility and accessibility of online learning.
