A Jesuit learning community in Thailand
In all things, to love and serve
En todo, amar y servir
Xavier Learning Community (XLC) is situated in Mae Chan District in the Province of Chiangrai, less than 20 minutes from the Golden Triangle.
XLC is a residential institute that envisions itself to be a culturally diverse institution for the uplift and empowerment of young people.
It is aimed at educating the young people – especially ethnic groups in northern Thailand and neighboring countries – to become humane and competent leaders and to reach their full potential based on the Jesuit tradition.
Providing opportunities to develop professional expertise, skills necessary to live and survive in the 21st century, XLC is committed to forming men and women of integrity working for and with others to build a just and harmonious world.
Until XLC has transitioned to become a full-fledged college, it cannot grant its own academic degrees to its students. In response to this, XLC has enrolled the students in a four-year study program at Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University. This will culminate in a Bachelor Degree in English.
THE XLC EXPERIENCE
Students of all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed, and the campus features areas that invite students to pray, meditate, and live their faith.
A structured schedule permits students to focus on their courses, both online, and in the classroom.
Students contribute to the life of the campus in various ways, and participate in regular activities to reflect on their community life.
