The academics at Xavier are truly top-notch. All the teachers go out of the way to make sure you are doing well in their class and at Xavier as a whole. The administration really cares about each student; close relationships between the Deans/Principal/Headmaster and individual students are quite common and a welcomed occurrence.Xavier has pretty much every extracurricular activity one might think of, and if we don't have it, you can make it. The quality of clubs, athletics, and other activities is often unparalleled compared to other schools due to the great and long-term success of teams and the extremely high-ranking and competitive nature of the clubs.
