History of Xavier Catholic Preschool:

The Early Childhood Center was established in 1986 to provide pre-school education for three to five-year-olds, which is now called Xavier Catholic School and resides next to Sacred Heart Church.  Immaculata and Xavier consolidated in 1998 to form the Leavenworth Regional Catholic School System (LCRSS).

Quote from one of our International families here at Xavier Preschool

"Indeed, (our daughter) felt very well welcomed when she arrived, even without speaking a word of English, and she very quickly loved going to school every morning. She is so much enjoying both extended care with Mrs. Sommerfield and her wonderful staff, and afternoon Preschool class... ... you can be proud of what Xavier preschool's staff is doing!" Cyrille and Mathilde Tiberghien International Military Student, (IMS - CGSCOC)
