This school aims not merely at preparing it's pupils to qualify for the Secondary School Certificate and Higher Secondary Examinations but to develop their character and personality through graded responsibility, personal guidance and social awareness.

The Catholic Educators consider it their duty to show due respect to the religious feelings and the freedom of conscience of their non-Catholic pupils. However, external worship other than Christianity/Catholic is not allowed in the School premises. Catholic Students are given religious instruction, whereas non-Catholics are taught Moral Science, a course in their fundamental duties to God, to their fellowmen and women and to self.
St. Xavier’s High School Loyola Hall is a Catholic School committed to the educational & spiritual traditions of the Society of Jesus.
The purpose of education imparted in our school is not merely to prepare the students for examination but for life itself. As we understand, education is not an end in itself, but rather a means to help a person to think and make decisions about ultimate values, one’s relationship with God, one’s personal goal and one’s commitment to others. Irrespective of one’s cast, creed and code, everyone is given equal opportunity to be a beneficiary of this institute.
Academic excellence, all round development, fostering of ethical and religious values and developing a sense of social responsibility are some of the characteristics of education imparted in Loyola Hall.
We have just completed our Platinum Jubilee and are now marching towards the centenary celebration. 100 years of service in the field of education is a big contribution to the society.Long live Xavier’s..!
