St. Xavier's School, Gandhinagar, is run by the Jesuits. St. Francis Xavier was the first Jesuit to come to India 450 years ago, and schools throughout India are named after him.
In the late 60s, many governmental officials had their children in St. Xavier's High School, Loyola Hall, Ahmedabad, or in Mt. Carmel, Ahmedabad. When the capital was moved to Gandhinagar the Government of Gujarat assisted in the founding of Xavier's High School there and also assists with salaries for teachers, Beginning in a government building in Sector 20, in 1982 the school shifted to a sprawling campus in Sector 8, with football fields, a cricket ground, two basketball courts, a full-sized skating rink, a canteen, and a tree-filled and environmentally friendly campus.
The students come from all strata of society and the school is affiliated to the Gujarat Secondary Board of education running both Gujarati and English medium streams.
