FOUNDER OF SXC

Fr. Albert Lebeau, S.J., was born in Belgium. He was a man of tremendous energy and he was endowed with many social virtues. Refined, graceful and genial, he was humorous too. A high sense of beauty was another outstanding trait in Fr. Lebeau and this manifested itself in his passion for music. He possessed the profound instinct of forgiveness and generosity and his spiritual ministry was abundantly fruitful. With the help and cooperation of Fr. Causannel, S.J., Fr. Dhanasamy, S.J., and Fr. A. Gnanapragasam, S.J., also played a leading role in the founding and the early development of the College. Fr. Lebeau was appointed as the first Principal and he successfully led the college from 1923-1926. On 30th September, 1940, Fr. Lebeau left the world for eternal peace.

THE COAT OF ARMS

The three branches of palm leaves on the right side of the emblem signify that our institution is situated in Tirunelveli District. The ear of rice corn arched on the left side of the emblem represents Maruthanilam. The local symbols connected by a cross highlights the fact that ours is a Christian institution. At the top of the cross, the College motto, Veritate Lumen et Vita (Life and Light through Truth) is inscribed. The shield at the front of the cross, has two divisions. On the right IHS., the Jesuit motto is inscribed. The squares on the left indicate the spiritual, moral, emotional, and intellectual development that education fosters in a person. The emblem thus means that St.Xavier's College is a Jesuit institution of higher learning established in Tirunelveli District for the all round development of its pupils.

NATURE AND AIM

The Jesuit College aims at the training of young men of quality to be leaders in all walks of life so that they may serve the people of our nation in truth, justice and love. Accordingly, this College is to be an agent of social change, instilling in the youth an awareness of the great need in our country of social justice based on brotherhood and dignity of the human person. Thus, it aims at making its own contribution towards a transformation of the present social condition, so that justice, equality and the moral values enshrined in the Constitution of India may prevail in the daily life of every citizen. The aim of St.Xavier's is the sound formation (religious, intellectual, social and physical) of the young based on Christian principles. Every student is required, therefore to attend Religion (for Catholics) or Ethics (for others) classes, and classes on social analysis and personality development. They are also expected to take part in the extension service programmes organised by the College.

AUTONOMY

In recognition of its service and to increase its efficiency still further, autonomy has been conferred on St.Xavier's College with effect from June 1987. In the autonomous set up, this College is free to determine the course pattern, frame its own syllabi for the various courses and adopt suitable methods of teaching and evaluation. The College is an affiliated First Grade College of the Manonmaniam Sundaranar University which will award degrees with the name of St.Xavier's College mentioned on them.

The College was accredited with Five Stars by the Ntional Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) on 17th April 2000. The College was re-accredited with 'A' Grade by NAAC in April 2006.
