In, 1870 Jesuit Fathers came to Asansol to start Educational Institutions to educate the people of Asansol working in Collieries, factories and Railways. Their sole aim was to uplift the people through Education especially through the English Higher Education. This English Higher Education would make the people to think and act in responsible freedom.

Father’s Poem

St. Xavier's the new born
You are no less than others
Through you are new to the place
You are first in many ways.
You are the first college
To be registered under
Kazi Nazrul University
Which in itself is new
Beside you are the first
English medium college here
In the coal belt of Asansol, Durgapur
To spread you tentacles around.
Though you are away
From the maddening city of kolkata
Saturated with so many
Educational higher institutions
It is better to be here
With your new identity and name
Away from the known ambience
To a lesser known town,Asansol.
Here you have a better chance
To prove to the simple folk
That you are an institution
With excellence parlance.

So you have a tall task
To impart good education
To the lesser mortals
of this less known town.
So open your wings
And fly high and around
To infuse wisdom
into the minds of the youth.
Let the people of this area
Come to know the difference
of imparting knowledge
Through the portals of your ambience.
You be the source of wisdom
To the seekers of knowledge
To excel to their best ability
To become wise and noble persons.
May you be a college with difference
In academic excellence
Character formation of all
To make men and women of worth.
Let the name of St. Xavier's
Ring out in every ear
As you rise to the heights
Of top institutions in India.
