Capital Campaign Underway!


The Forward with Faith capital campaign to raise funds to renovate our school is still ongoing. Thus far SFX parish has been able to raise just over $1 million to upgrade our facilities. Other sources of revenue are being sought. School families, foundations, and businesses are being asked to sponsor this effort. Alumni are also being asked to step-up to support the campaign as well. The adjacent letter from Sister Anna will be sent to many alumni for whom we have addresses to ask for financial support of this effort. Renovations are planned for the summer of 2018. All who appreciate the benefit they received from SFXCS/SJCS and want to help continue the legacy of strong Catholic education in SE Georgia are asked to financially contribute to the campaign. The amount of money raised will determine how much work can be done at the school, so please be as generous as possible. More information on the campaign can be found in the posted article just above this one. Also, a full brochure on the plans can be found on the SFX parish website. Thank you for your generosity!

Alumnus has strong golf season

Ryan McHugh, SFXCS Class of 2015, was an instrumental part of the Frederica 2017 golf team that won the state championship.

Above is a picture of the state champion Frederica Knights with Ryan standing 3rd from the right. Great job, Ryan - and nice floppy hat!

GRACE Scholars

The state of Georgia has developed a program that allows one to redirect part of one's state tax liability to a private school of one's choice. The Bishops of Georgia have developed a program called GRACE Scholars which organizes these contributions for the Catholic schools within our state. The money goes to families needing help to pay tuition. An individual can redirect up to $1,000, married couples $2,500, and S-corporations up to $10,000 per year. This is money that would normally go to Atlanta to be spent as seen fit by the politicians there. Instead, this money would go to your private school of choice to be used for tuition assistance for financially qualifying students. Please consider signing up for this program through GRACE Scholars and request the deferred money be sent to SFXCS. You help deserving children at SFXCS, no additional money comes out of your pocket, and you can include this amount of money in your tax deductible charitable contributions on your Federal tax return.

SFXCS has spelling champ again

Current SFXCS 8th grader, Ares Ellis, claimed the 2016-17 diocesan spelling bee title in dominating fashion for the second straight year. Ares, a strong all-around student, excels in Spelling and will be going for a third consecutive title in his final year at SFXCS this year. As a fifth grader, Ares finished second in the diocesan bee. Only a stellar effort by then 8th grader Richard Ebri prevented Ares from starting his dynastic run a year earlier.

    Blast from the past!

    Brief history of SFXCS

    Our school was started in 1900 by the Sisters of St. Joseph and has been in continuous operation since then. It was started as St. Joseph's Catholic School and was operated out of a single wooden building on Howe street. In the mid-1950's, with the support of St. Francis Xavier Parish, the current school facility was built along with the nearby convent. In appreciation of the parish support, the Sisters renamed the school St. Francis Xavier Catholic School. In the 1960's, the annex building was constructed, and other buildings along Reynolds Street to Howe Street were later added. The late 1980's brought the construction of Xavier Hall which the school uses for athletic events, lunch, PE classes, morning assembly, and meeting space. The Sisters of St. Joseph had an official presence at the school until the retirement of Sister Anna in 2005.


    Make sure you put in your home location. We would love to see how SFX has spread throughout the US and the world!
