to encourage them continually to strive after excellence in every field
to value and judiciously use their freedom
to be clear and firm on principles, and courageous in action, tolerant towards others
to be unselfish in the service of their fellowmen.

Vision statement
Transform the students into persons of competence, conscience, compassion, character and faith, in collaboration with teachers and parents, for building a better community.

Goals set to realize the vision
• Enable students to become men of action and reflection, rooted firmly in and inspired by the values of human dignity, equality, social justice and secularism.
• Create in the students a sense of compassion for the weak and the powerless in society, love for all living creatures, concern for the environment.
• Encourage students to do their best in the curricular and co-curricular programmes leading towards fuller personal growth and transformation.
• Foster in them skills to live and work in harmony with those who differ from them in religion, caste, language, ethnicity, etc and in case of conflicts, to resolve or manage them constructively.
• Form them into spiritual leaders with a social conscience and with a sense of global solidarity.
• To promote deeper bonding among the staff with a common mission.
• To reach out to parents and to share with them our vision of education.

Examination and Tests
The Unit System is followed in all classes. Briefly, the System divides the syllabus of each subject into clearly defined blocks of related matter, eg one or more chapters of a textbook. As soon as the matter of a particular unit is completed in class, the student is assessed on it.
The school Year is divided into two semesters. At the end of each semester examinations are held.

School Anthem
Proud of our school and happy are we
Proud to belong to dear SXC
NIHIL ULTRA, Nothing Beyond,
Be it in studies, on the playground.
In dramas, debates and contests as well
We boys of SXC do excel
Politeness, obedience and honesty
Always our forte.
Proud of our motto, proud of our badge,
Proud of our colours,
Proud of our flag,
Banner in hand as onwards we go
Helping the weak, the lame and the slow
And when we leave the portals so dear we’ll ne’er forget our Alma Mater
Let’s all give a lusty cheer-
HURRAY! For our school so dear.
