Xavier School Nuvali opened in June 2012, and offers a K-12 curriculum – including the core Chinese language program and Jesuit formation that are the hallmarks of a Xavier education.

The campus is situated in a 15-hectare property in the heart of Nuvali, a new eco-community development of Ayala Land in Laguna. The first phase of development includes a primary school building, gymnasium, a student leadership center, and the Oratory of St. Francis Xavier. The campus master plan and school facilities were designed on the principle of sustainability. The buildings use eco-friendly materials and fixtures, natural and energy-efficient lighting, and a rainwater collection and recycling system.

More importantly, the learning spaces are designed to develop 21st-century skills. Classrooms and activity areas are equipped with the proper IT infrastructure to allow students access to a world of resources. This will support the school’s “One2One” computer-based approach that promotes self-directed learning.

Recently completed was the school’s administration building. Future developments include an auditorium, another gymnasium (with swimming pool), two football fields, two tennis courts, and separate buildings for the junior and senior high schools. The plan also provides for dormitories, residences and a retreat house.
