“God did not promise Skies always Blue, Flowers strewn Pathways nor Sun without Rain, Joy without Sorrow, Peace without Pain”.
St. Xavier’s College was founded by the Archdiocese of Goa in June 1963 and completes 60 years this Academic Year. Our college is affiliated to Goa University and has been accredited in 1999 at the Four Star Level by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), an autonomous institution of the University Grants Commission. In 2019 it was reaccredited for the 4th Cycle with ‘A’ Grade and CGPA score of 3.12 on a 4-point scale.
St. Xavier’s College is a full-fledged multi-faculty college with Arts, Science and Commerce Streams as well as Self finance Courses like BBA, BBA(T&T), BCA, Biotechnology, Mass Communication and Journalism at the Undergraduate level and in addition to the Under graduate programmes, Xaviers has made a mark in the field of Post graduate programmes too. We offer M.A in Psychology, M.Com and M.Sc in Physical Chemistry at the Post Graduate level. The details related to the above programmes are available in the Prospectus.
When we work, we are a flute through which whispering turns into music. We sow the seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy. At Xavier’s, we nourish a sense of competence in students by paying attention to students’ academic performance, initiatives and creativity.
A flower generously distributes perfume and honey to all. When its work is done, it falls away quietly. Many of our faculty like the flower give their best unassuming in return. Our dedicated faculty normally organises Internship programmes/ field trips/ trips/ educational and study tours however due to Covid-19 pandemic, students were encouraged to participate in the Webinars, Web Series , SWAYAM Courses etc.

Courage is not absence of fear but resistance to fear. The caring attitude towards one another have enabled us in facing the challenges before us while our trust in God has enabled us regain our inner vitality, enthusiasm and optimism. We look forward for a normal year ahead of us.
Indeed we have been waiting anxiously to begin another Academic Year, 2022-2023. This Year is a special Year for us at Xaviers as we celebrate 60 Years in the field of Education. To the freshers, I would say, Dear Young students, welcome, make the most of your three years at Xaviers. Dream freely, make decisions, take risks, banish anxiety, cast out fears and fly high so that you may be able to make the most of the opportunities life offers. We assure them excellence in academics, accomplishments in co-curicular activities and finally be groomed as well disciplined and responsible citizens of our nation. We pray that every student feels welcomed, loved and nurtured by our dedicated and compassionate faculty. May Almighty continue to bless the Management and every stakeholder of the College.
