At Xavier Ateneo, our minds and hearts are united in working together for service. We work together for the formation of our students, so they will become leaders of character, so they will become persons of competence, conscience, and compassionate commitment, so they will become men and women for and with others. We are united in vision, purpose, and ideals. We share passion and fire, hopes and aspirations, struggles and successes.

At Xavier Ateneo, our minds and hearts are united in sharing a common mission. As partners in mission, we are never content with the status quo, the known, the tried, the already existing. We are constantly driven to discover, redefine, and reach out for the magis. For us, frontiers and boundaries are not obstacles or ends, but new challenges to be faced, new opportunities to be welcomed.

At Xavier Ateneo, our minds and hearts are united in the pursuit of magisMagis is too often misunderstood in competitive terms, misapprehended as competitive excellence. “I am better than you!” “We are better than you!” “Our school is better than yours.” This is not what magis means. 

For the Xavier Atenean, magis means to become the best that we are capable of becoming. In other words, magis means that if ever we are competing, we are competing against ourselves, not against others. In more spiritual terms, magis means becoming the persons God calls us to be. Magis (the ‘more’) is about the quality of our interior disposition and attitude – like being more humble, more honest and truthful, more open and adaptable, more daring and courageous, more detached, more trusting, in short, more Christ-like.

Congratulations to the 2019 Xavier Ateneo Fire & Magis Awardees!
