ST. XAVIER COLLEGE is a venture of the Diocese of Kohima in imparting higher education, inspired by the vision for humanity drawn from the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Christian education recognizes the vast potentialities latent in man’s faculties of mind, heart and body, and tries to bring them out and develop them in a balanced manner. It also takes into account the social and economic dimensions of life. Hence Christian institutions place before their staff and students high ideals of humanism and service towards which they are continually invited to strive. It makes education a formative process in order to recognize others as persons to acknowledge God as Creator and to be worthy to serve both God and People.
