    I had a great experience at St. X over the past four years. It is a fantastic Jesuit high school that prepares its students academically, spiritually, and socially for life. This school is where I met my best friends, discovered myself and who I wanted to be, and matured from a boy into a man. The community and brotherhood at St. X is unbreakable, and you never feel alone when times get tough. The school really allows you to find yourself and to be yourself. I am wholeheartedly prepared for college and life beyond. The only thing I’d like to see change is how the administration interacts with its students. The old one was great, but my senior year we had a new administration that wasn’t very connected or transparent.

    We currently have two boys at St. X. At St X it’s cool to be smart! And the boys encourage each other to do better and be the best they can be. There are also numerous opportunities for the boys to get involved, from Top Ranked Sports, Clubs, Community Volunteerism and school involvement. St. X seeks to develop the entire person.
    Everything that I have seen and been involved in, whether it be a classroom exercise or club, has been fun and full of energy, by both teachers and students. The students act as family, with students supporting each other and giving help with homework, hard times in life, and in relationships. No one is excluded, and everyone can find people who are like them and become friends with them. Teachers are always willing to help and work with students. They go above and beyond to let students have fun in class, clubs, sports, and other events. This school makes anyone feel welcome, and will help anyone succeed in their academic life.
