Catholic School Office

On September 30, 1920, Saint Francis Xavier Catholic School opened its doors to an awaiting public, and is now the only predominately African American Catholic School in the Baton Rouge area attracting students from Plaquemine, Zachary, Gonzales and other areas around town. Since 1920, Saint Francis Xavier Catholic School has been entrusted with the education and development of our young children and its mission of educating the whole child continues. Saint Francis will celebrate its 100th anniversary as a school this year. To celebrate Catholic Schools Week, the students celebrated Mass with Bishop Michael Duca.
