The mission of Xavier High School is to develop the total person in a Catholic environment.
Xavier High School is a part of the tradition and mission of the Roman Catholic Church and the Archdiocese of Dubuque.
As a part of that tradition we are committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus in a Catholic faith-filled environment that motivates each student, staff member, parent/guardian and supporter to share in that mission; developing each person's spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical gifts; respecting each individual person's unique value and talents; building God's Kingdom through service to our community, nurturing family relationships, and modeling Christ in our everyday actions; creating an atmosphere of justice and trust through embracing the Gospel in our decisions and actions; fostering stewardship through personal commitment, responsibility, and accountability to one another and to our world; and providing a learning atmosphere where creativity and innovation are honored and celebrated.
