San Xavier Mission School has had a long history of being a great school for extracurricular sports. We have won many awards that are displayed in the school library. This year we are continuing this tradition by being in both basketball and volleyball leagues. There are other sports such as: track, football, baseball, etc., and if we have enough students that are interested in these please let your teachers know and maybe our school can do these also.
