Founded by a registered nurse in 2005, Xavier College is approved by the Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to operate as an accredited institution. Approval to operate means compliance with state standards as set forth in the California Education Code.  The school is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).

Xavier College’s philosophy is based on the belief in nursing practice as both an art and a science, taught in a caring environment that considers the student’s individuality and promotes students’ accountability for personal growth and mastery.
