This Association has been resurrected from this year. This forum will meet periodically to discuss the progress of the college, any outstanding issues, as well as future plans and programs so as to get valuable feedback for decision-making. The Parents Teachers Association will meet at least once every term immediately after every term examination.
This is a forum for students to develop leadership and inter-personal skills. The Student Council comprises of student representatives from each class, who meet regularly to discuss primarily academic as well as co-curricular and extra curricular activities. While the college management and faculty are focused on academic excellence, the Student Council focuses on how to make Xavier Academy a more enjoyable, fun place. The Student Council organises every year \"NEF Day and Freshers\' Welcome\" for the incoming students, \"Farewell\" for the outgoing students, and assists the management in conducting the yearly orientation and anniversary programs as well as talent show, debates and other interesting activities. The Student Council has additional responsibility from this year in helping the senior management in conducting co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The outgoing students of the Student Council also take the initiative in the publication of the annual college magazine, \"Reminiscences\". The College Management is always striving to expand the students\' horizon and appreciation of relevant and topical issues.
