Xaverian Brothers High School is an extraordinary place for boys grades 7-12. Our son started when XB opened 7th grade and the school, administration, faculty, staff, academics, sports and community have been nothing short of incredible! Whenever we have a question or concern we are met with a smile and 'how can we help' from anyone at XB. Not every school is the same and there are many to choose from, but Xaverian Brothers High School is worth the time and look if you have a son who you would like to see excel in a strong and supportive way from his school. Come to the Open House on October 21 (for grades 9-12) and October 28 (for grades 7&8)!

Xaverian is a true gem. Across the board -- academics, service, athletics, faith-related events, my two sons always come away with truly transformative experiences. Their education at Xaverian will ensure their success at a top college -- and while that is certainly a goal, the community of "men and women for others" is evident, supporting them to become good, honest, selfless young men... we could not ask for more and consider their time at Xaverian to be a gift we will always be deeply grateful for -- and it is a fun place to be!

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.
