Saint Xavier High School Reviews

St. X has an excellent academic program for all types of students based on placement exam. Discipline is second to none. In 2017-18 school year, St.X was top rated boys sports program in the nation, based on Max Preps Cup point rankings. There are also numerous clubs so there is something for everyone. They also have a great intramural basketball program. I attended here and my son is currently a student. I think the tuition is worth every penny, and also tuition aid is available for those who may need it.

St. X has provided an excellent academic foundation for our son. The schools record for preparing students for college is exemplary with an average ACT of 26.6, small teacher to student classroom ratios, and many AP/Honors classes offered. Many teachers implement character building lessons in to the curriculum as well.
My experience at St. Xavier was phenomenal. I had the best experience with teachers, students, and everything in between. I have made some lifelong friends over my four years. I recieved the best possible education abailible to me in my city. My teachers were always zealous about their jobs and would do whatever it took to help me out when I needed it. They would even drop sports practices or meetings to meet with me. I have learned about my faith life and I got an oppurtunity to explore myself spiritually. Truly the best times of my life so far were when I was a student at St. X. I love my school. I am not looking forward to having to leave this awesome place for college, but I am excited to see what college holds for me as Saint Xavier has prepared me for college and my future in indecribable ways.
