    St X is a school rich in tradition and legacy. I am a third generation st X student, my grandpa, 4 uncles, brother and 2 cousins are graduates and I currently have 3 cousins attending. I love that they have all walked the same halls as myself. I know I will be prepared for college when I complete my senior year. St X has a outstanding reputation of preparing students both academically and spiritually for the future. I am proud to say I went to St Xavier Hogh School.

    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.
