Continue the Mission
Parents who wish to educate their children at St. Xavier’s are expected to acknowledge the Christian Minority status of the school and show readiness to share the values, vision and mission of the School.
St. Xavier’s admits those candidates who it considers will respond to the values it stands for and who will persevere and benefit from the education offered in the school.Applications for admission are to be made in the prescribed form and according to the schedule announced by the School.
Admissions are handled by the Selection Committee constituted for the purpose. The selection committee is chaired by the Principal. The relevant Vice Principal supervises the admission process. As required the services of the teachers and qualified persons outside the School may be utilised for the selection of candidates. The committee will make its decisions, on the basis of the School’s admission policy, free from compulsions and coercion. Any direct or indirect pressure on the School authorities for granting admission to a candidate may disqualify him/her.
Usually admissions are not taken in Std X and XII. If vacancies are available in these classes rare exceptions may be made in the case of candidates who are already registered with the CBSE and whose parents have been transferred to Hazaribag recently.
Incorrect declarations of age or any other matter will disqualify a candidate for admission. Subsequent discovery by the School authorities of such wrong declarations can lead to cancellation of admission or dismissal from the School.
Depending on the availability of vacancies the School gives preference to the following groups for admission, if in its judgment, the concerned candidate shows the potential to persevere in the School and profit from it.
• Christian candidates, especially Catholics
• Scheduled Tribe and Schedule Caste candidates
• Children of alumni active in HOXA
• Candidates whose admission may help to advance the mission of the School.
Admission to the Preparatory Class
The candidate should be between 4½ and 5½ years of age on April 1st of the year of admission. Evidently, then, a particular candidate can apply only once for admission to Prep class. Parents must declare the child’s correct date of birth in the admission form and attach a copy of the date of birth certificate issued by the competent government agency from the place of birth of the child. If the date of registration of the child’s birth does not fall within a year of the child’s birth, additional reliable proof to corroborate the certificate should be produced. Affidavits will not be accepted in lieu of birth certificates. Catholics are required to present the baptism certificate of the candidate. Baptism certificates issued by other churches that practise infant baptism are also acceptable. The date of birth entered in the admission register will not be changed subsequently.
The candidates applying for admission must have the elementary literacy and quantitative reasoning skills appropriate for children of about five years of age. They are understood to have attended a pre-School which offers a balance of academic learning and social skills. However, attendance at a preschool is not a prerequisite for admission to the preparatory class. Those who have completed the level of teaching equivalent to that offered in the Prep class (e.g. UKG) will not be eligible. Children are observed as per current laws, for alertness, school-readiness and age-appropriate elementary literacy and quantitative skills.
Based on the scrutiny of the completed application forms and the strength of the test scores, a merit list is prepared. From the top of the merit list 200 candidates are invited with their parents to interact with a designated panel. Both parents are expected to be present with the child at this time. The originals of all the documents submitted with the application form are verified during this meeting.
If for any reason some shortlisted candidates are not found eligible for admission, or they fail to keep to the schedule of admission formalities the merit list will constitute the waiting list. Normally no new cases are considered for admission to the Prep Class during the year. Generally admissions are not taken even from the waiting list after the end of June.
Admission to Classes I - IX
Applications for admission to these classes will be entertained only if vacancies are available. Admissions against vacancies are normally granted during the first half of April. After the first half of the first semester admissions are not usually granted. The candidate has to appear for a test appropriate for both his/her age and the class to which admission is sought. The candidate’s qualifying in this test as well as his/her general suitability for the School as explained previously will form the basis of selection for admission.
• Applications for admission of candidates from other Catholic Schools in Hazaribag are considered only if they are accompanied by a recommendation (no objection) letter from the head of the school.
• The School is not in a position to reserve seats for candidates who come during the course of the year due to the transfer of their parents on their jobs. They can be considered if vacancies are available.
Admission to the Plus Two Section
Candidates applying for admission must have marks above the levels detailed below as well as satisfactory record of conduct and attitude. Students from other Schools must submit attested copies of mark sheets of Class IX annual, Class X pre-Board and Board examinations. These marks will figure in the merit list prepared for selection. They must also furnish a certificate of good conduct from the School last attended.
Students from other Boards of education may be considered for admission if they secure marks above the following levels:
Science Stream: 75% overall average marks plus 75% in Mathematics, General Science, and English.Commerce Stream: 70% overall average marks plus 70% in Mathematics, Social Studies, and English
Students from other Schools and other Boards may be required to take the admission tests. The content for the tests will be from CBSE Class X syllabus in the following subjects.
Science Stream: English, Mathematics, and Science
Commerce Stream: English, Mathematics, and Social Studies.
There may be an additional test of computer skills for all the students who wish to study Informatics Practices or Computer Science.
Jharkhand Board students will have an additional test of English conversation and reading to assess the potential of the students to take classes in English. No preparation may be required on the part of the applicants for these English tests.
The allocation of streams and optional subjects will be purely according to the merit of the student. The minimum acceptable marks for the students from St. Xavier’s for each stream will be determined while finalizing the admission lists. Students who passed Class X from the School may be denied admission on disciplinary grounds.
The CBSE is in the process of making major changes with regard to Class IX and X assessment and certification. Therefore, these policies may be subject to change. In particular, the grades obtained by the students and their scores on the aptitude test conducted by the Board also will be taken into account for granting admission and allocation of streams.
