Amazing school, Learning centers are something that can''t be found anywhere else

Our son is currently a sophmore in college. As each day passes he appreciates more and more how is 4 years a Xaverian prepared him for college. He was not one of the "top performers" at XBHS (middle of the pack,) but while there he developed study and homework habits that made the transition to college absolutly seamless. His first year in college he saw how students coming in from some very good public schools hadn''t developed the dicipline and skill sets necessary to make the freshman year in college, and most espically the first semester, a successful one. High expectations are set at XBHS, and they don''t want to hear excuses if you don''t perform to your potential. When your college application lands on the desk of the admissions department, they understand that a middle of the pack XBHS grad is far better prepared and qualified than many of the kids with high GPAs from many other schools. They are serious about education and developing a student with moral dicipline. I''d highly recommend XBHS.
