St. Francis Xavier provides the best quality education to students throughout the Southwest Florida region. With 21st Century Learning Centers, advanced technology in the classrooms, and diverse academic programs, we excel at giving our students the teachings they need to succeed in school and beyond.

However, none of these advancements would have been possible without the generosity of our donors and our annual fundraising efforts. In the past, our team of educators, staff, and friendly volunteers have held numerous successful fundraising events. These include our End of Year Annual Gala, Mom’s Club meetings, and the Virtual Variety Show Gala.

In 2022, our annual End of Year Gala corralled over 300 cowboys and cowgirls for a night of dancing, dinner, and drinks. This adult-only fundraising event has a new theme every year; this year’s theme was “Boots & Bling.” Parents, staff, and other partygoers can get involved and give back through fun activities like the live and silent auctions. Local businesses and community members donate amazing items to be auctioned off to raise money in support of our students.

Parents and community members alike were swept away by our incredibly talented students during their production of Matilda Jr. The play follows the story of a young girl with out-of-this-world powers who finds refuge in story books. The play ran for one weekend in April and highlighted the hard work, creativity, and outstanding acting abilities of every student who participated. Each year, the school puts on a different play and students can audition for their parts. Tickets were sold to the public.

It was a jolly time for the whole family, with festively decorated trees, a Christmas-themed fashion parade, contests, and much more. Tickets for this event sold for just $15 per family. We spread the Christmas cheer with nearly 200 guests!
