We are so glad that you are here!


Daily Schedule

Our East Campus, located at 21 N. Catherine Avenue in LaGrange, houses our youngest learners: Preschool 3 through kindergarten. Just a few blocks down the road from our Main Campus, East Campus is a wonderfully warm and inviting place for our students to begin their educational journey here at St. Francis Xavier School.

Morning Drop-Off

Thank you for your continued cooperation with drop-off and pick up procedures.  With the exception of a few train snags, the process is going quite well!!  Remember, for greatest efficiency, please pull you vehicle all the way up in the queue.  Even when preceding cars are slow to exit, due to train or traffic back-ups, it important for the next group of cars to wait patiently and pull all the way to the front before letting the children out.  This allows for the greatest number of cars to do the same.

Dress Code

The children in Pre-School, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten are to wear comfortable and school appropriate play clothes.  They do not have a specific dress code.  All East Campus students, however, are welcome every Friday to celebrate their Falcon Pride by wearing St. Francis Xavier t-shirts or by dressing in the school colors of Blue and Gold!  Extra Small & Small St. Francis Xavier t-shirts can be purchased by contacting the school office at 708-588-1472 or by email

Preschool Readiness

Please remember, all enrolled students must be toilet trained.  Diapers and Pull-ups are not permitted.  This is a firm Archdiocesan policy, to which we must abide.  We thank you kindly for your cooperation and understanding.  

Dressing for Recess

The weather often unpredictable, it may be a challenge to dress children for the outdoors.  Just a reminder: Barring rain, thunder or large puddles we hope to take full-day students out to recess each day.  As the occasional “blustery day” comes along, please remember to dress children accordingly.
