Xavier High School

  • As a Catholic, college preparatory school sponsored by the Xaverian Brothers, Xavier endeavors to form a man who is challenged academically, spiritually alive, physically sound, and technologically aware.
  • Our academic, religious, service, athletic and extracurricular programs are constructed to reflect a community centered on Judeo-Christian values.
  • Members of the Xavier community support each student in his growth as a human being.
  • Xavier instills in each student a sense of responsibility for using his God given talents and gifts to the best of his ability.
  • Be a man is the motto of Xavier High School, summing up the educational mission of our school.
  • This motto, often extended to, "Be a man. A man like Jesus," is central to our philosophy, and is reflected in how we work with students to realize maturity and the dignity of the human spirit.
  • To achieve this goal we guide all students in educational and vocational needs, helping them prepare for college, for work, and above all, for life itself.
