Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan Basic Education is an integral part of the Jesuit educational apostolate, Catholic in its orientation, and Filipino in its concerns.

We are a community composed of Jesuits, lay faculty, staff, parents, and students working together for the total education and formation of the young particularly in Northern Mindanao.

We envision to develop conscientious servant leaders marked with excellence, enriched with Filipino culture and heritage, concerned with maintaining and preserving ecological balance, and employing a pedagogy that integrates Ignatian Spirituality in all phases of life at school, in the community, nation, and the world.

We seek to form Christ-centered, competent, compassionate, committed and culturally-integrated individuals who –

M manifest a firm belief in Christ as Friend and Model of our lives;
A affirm to strive to be disciplined and critical yet open to new ideas;
G gear to practice Cura Personalis and are capable of transcending self-interest for the common good;
I ignite the passion for truth and justice in uplifting the plight of the poor and work for the care and preservation of our natural environment; and
S show respect for our Filipino identity, culture, and tradition and ready to serve our country.

Persons for others and with others, we believe that TRUTH frees us.

Veritas Liberabit Vos.

We, Xavier University – Basic Education, dedicate the pursuit of MAGIS as our way of life.
