St. Xavier’s College, Ahmedabad, established in 1955, offers programmes in Arts-Humanities, Sciences, Computer Sciences and Commerce. Being one of the first colleges in the state of Gujarat to have been accredited by NAAC in the year 2001 with five stars, it has thereafter been an impetus to maintain a continuum of quality education and grow with every accreditation and the Autonomy status. The academic autonomy has allowed the institution to foray into higher realms of education. With its Ignatian pedagogical paradigm that encompasses the three elements of experience, reflection and action, a holistic view of the world is pronounced. The ethos and energy of the institution is due to its values, inclusiveness, equity and diverse cultures. The college has been ranked in the top colleges by GSIRF, NIRF, the India Today and The Week Surveys of Best Colleges. Xavier’s is not just a college, it is a way of life.
