  • At Xavier, we have a long tradition, since 1847, of helping young men grow intellectually, spiritually, and physically.
  • Our roots as a Jesuit, Catholic school commit us to guiding our students to be Men for Others who work for the greater glory of God and the betterment of the world.
  • It is a bold mission, but one that, when undertaken wholeheartedly, yields magnificent results.

School Notes

  • Since 1847, Xavier has offered a transformative education capable of helping young men of competence, conscience, and compassion to grow holistically--to be young men open to growth, intellectually competent, loving, religious, and committed to doing justice.  Our Jesuit roots commit us to guiding our students to become Men for Others, critically minded young men who work to bring love, justice, and mercy into action for the greater glory of God. We love that this is our bold mission, but one that when undertaken wholeheartedly yields magnificent results.
