In 2012 the College opened a new 7-9 Campus in Officer.
St Francis Xavier College has been educating young men and women in the regions of Beaconsfield, Berwick, Narre Warren, Pakenham, Iona/Maryknoll and Koo Wee Rup for more than three decades. Originally established on Beaconsfield Avenue in Beaconsfield in 1978, the College responded to the demand for Catholic education in other areas and expanded to Cranbourne (now St Peter's College) in 1987 and Berwick in 2003.
For many years the people in the areas around Pakenham have been calling for a new Catholic secondary school to meet the needs of educating the children of the rapidly expanding population of outer south-eastern Melbourne and the western reaches of Gippsland. In response to this need St. Francis Xavier College secured a magnificent site for the establishment of the Officer Campus.
Situated on the northern side of the intersection of Princes Highway and Cardinia Road in Officer, this 8 hectare (20 acre) site is easily accessed via car, bicycle, train, bus or foot. Our first intake of students commenced with Year 7 in 2012. Over the next few years we will expand to include Year 9 and anticipate accommodating 150 boys and girls in each year level. Our students currently undertake Years 10, 11 & 12 at the Beaconsfield Campus. The Parish of St Patrick's, Pakenham, has purchased the adjoining site and will construct a new Parish Primary School next to our Officer Campus in the near future.
Construction is well advanced for Stage 2 of the new Campus with future plans including specialist facilities for the disciplines of Science, Art and Design, Technology and Physical Education.
