St. Xavier's Collegiate School was
established in the year 1860 in Kolkata, India by the
Jesuits (missionary priests belonging to the order of the
Society of Jesus). The School comprises of two school
buildings separated by an intersection; one building
pertains to the Primary Section (classes Prep - 5) and the
other houses the Secondary section (classes 6-12). The
Secondary section shares the campus alongside the College.
The school is a Catholic Institution but admits and houses
students from all religious denominations, caste and creed.
In fact non-Christian students make up a large segment of
St. Xavier's Collegiate School as it stands today is
affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate
Examinations that conducts ICSE and ISC Examinations for
class 10 and 12 respectively. The school is also affiliated
to the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education that
conducts the Madhyamik Examination for class 10. Students
may choose between the two boards as per their choice and
preference. But in the recent years there has not been too
many registrations for the Madhyamik Examination. Most
students or all are opting for the Indian School Certificate
Examinations in Class 10.
The academic session of the school is from April to March.
Saturday and Sunday are the normal weekly holidays.
