We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle
Dear Prospective Students,
The above saying - to excel and to make excellence a habit - from Aristotle has been a perennial inspiration to all of us in Xavier Academy. It is our perennial quest for excellence which motivates us to impart quality and holistic education to our students. Besides academic excellence, we are also committed to producing morally upright students with character and integrity. We invite our students to be a part of this exciting journey.
Our efforts have consistently made Xavier Academy one of the top ten +2 institutions in the country from the very beginning. From the very first year of our operations in 1997, we have been achieving excellent results consistently. From the start of this decade (2010 onwards), our results have been outstanding. During this period, we manage to achieve almost 100% results in both science and commerce in two consecutive years. We are proud to be rated consistently within the top ten +2 institution in the country. It is because of the trust placed on us by our students, past and present, their parents and guardians, and many of our well-wishers as well as the commitment of our faculty and administrative staff, that we have been successful in achieving excellent results every year.
As someone, who has been teaching and managing education institutions for 40+ years, I feel very proud to have been the Founder Chairperson of NEF and XA and the main person, overseeing the college's development and progress all these years even when I was out of the country. After spending 18+ years out of the country, I returned to Nepal in July 2015 to be the Executive Chairperson/Principal of Xavier Academy and its associated colleges, namely Asian Institute of Technology and Management (AITM) in Khumaltar, Lalitpur, and Kathmandu Don Bosco College (KDBC), operating in XA premises.
We are committed to our motto of "Academic Excellence and Total Personality Development", which we adopted when we started our college in 1997, and have striven to be an "Institution that cares" from 2002. We have had our share of problems and have done our best to overcome the many challenges that have come our way over the past 18+ years. We are fully aware that reaching the top is difficult but staying at the top is even more difficult.
When reaching out to our prospective students, I do not want to attract them by making untoward promises. Our excellent track record speaks for itself!
The students will definitely find it very difficult to choose the right college to cater to their aspirations. Xavier Academy does not claim to be the best college in the country, but its track record of the last almost 19 years certainly makes it one of the best colleges in the country. The last almost 19 years have been a very exciting and enlightening journey for me personally. I have seen this college grow from a pioneer batch of 48 students to a college with almost 600 students. Our students have, not only excelled in their studies, but have excelled in their chosen profession. Indeed, I am proud of each and every one of my students, who have enrolled in this college, choosing this college instead of the many other colleges.
Before you make your final choice of college, I would like to request you to read this brochure, visit us and inspect our facilities, meet our senior management and faculty, talk with our students, past and present, and, if possible, meet the parents and guardians of our students. You should certainly visit other colleges as well before making one of the most important decisions of your life. The decision you make now will have tremendous impact on your future.
If you should choose to study in Xavier Academy, I wish to assure you that we will make every effort to justify your trust in us and to meet your expectations so that you can complete your further studies and choose the career of your choice.
Two years ago, we introduced social service as an extra-curricular activity to mould our students to be responsible citizens, who are committed to help the needy and deprived members of our society. We believe that national progress cannot be attained and sustained without reducing poverty and reducing the growing divide between the "rich" or the "haves" and the "poor" or the "have-nots". From this coming academic year, we have integrated many exciting co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to give our students a holistic education.
As the Chairperson of Nepal Education Foundation - Consortium of Colleges, Nepal (NEF-CCN), comprising of 4 reputed colleges, LA College of Higher Studies (LACHS), Asian Institute of Technology and Management (AITM), Xavier Academy College of Graduate Studies (XACGS) and Islington College, I am happy to inform you that our Consortium colleges offer 4 different +2 and "A" level courses with almost 2,000 students, 18 different undergraduate and graduate academic programs, with another almost 2,000 students. Therefore, we now have within our consortium a wide choice of both national and international programs, which provides the opportunities to many of our students to complete their undergraduate and graduate studies in one of our consortium colleges. We will continue to explore and offer additional courses, to cater to the varied interests and career choices of our students.
In Xavier Academy, every effort has been and will be made to ensure academic excellence and maintain discipline.
To us, education is not a past-time but a commitment to produce a critical mass of enlightened people who will contribute to socio-economic development of the country. We believe that investment in education is the best investment we can make. It is the best service we can render to our country.
Your enrollment in Xavier Academy will only bolster our commitment to serving the country by imparting quality education.
We will be more than happy to welcome you to the XA family and to help you achieve your academic dreams, should you decide to join our college.

XA is also propagating very effectively the message that it is an institution that cares, In this respect, XA is attempting to be different from other educational institutions.
I am happy that XA has always placed the students' interests first in formulating its academic programs and making decisions that affect the students' well-being. XA is fully aware that it has a corporate responsibility to produce well-rounded personalities who are able to contribute positively to societal growth and compete in this increasing globalized economic environment. As XA is ready to celebrate 19 years of academic excellence, XA is relishing the academic challenges of the coming years, as XA explores offering more interesting study options to the students. In this regard, I am happy that strategic partnerships with some reputed international universities have been established. XA will always continue to strive to ensure that no compromise is made in the quality of education it is imparting.
Xavier Academy is proud of its reputation and we are honored by the excellent accomplishments of our students. Over the past almost 19 years of operations, we have vigorously pursued our goal of encouraging optimism and growth. We wish to share our achievements with all our well-wishers. Your ongoing involvement will be the foundation for our success.
Xavier Academy also symbolizes both hope and opportunity. We all live in the information age where knowledge is power. The most powerful tool we can equip our students with is a quality education. Quality education is the need of the hour and we can proudly say that Xavier Academy has always provided quality education. The Academy not only imparts quality education but also promotes all-round development of its students preparing them for successful careers.
At the end of the day, what we need is an aspiration, an ambition and then finally creating an ambience to fulfill the ambition and aspiration. At Xavier Academy, we are making a conscious effort to build these in all our initiatives. We encourage prospective students to visit our campus and our website to know more about Xavier Academy, the institute that cares.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students, parents, teachers and administrative staff and senior management of XA as well as all our well-wishers for contributing to the continued success of XA.
