From Xaverian Brothers High School

For over half a century, Xaverian has helped to shape strong young men in the best sense of the word; and we believe strong means more than muscles and will. Strong is respecting others and yourself. It’s taking responsibility and giving credit where it’s due. Strong is speaking out, and it is also holding back. Strong is doing the right thing even when it’s not popular. Strong is having faith in the face of doubt.

At Xaverian, you will discover the true meaning of strength in an inclusive community where the dignity of each person is respected so that all can thrive. We empower students to achieve beyond their expectations and share their gifts with a world in need.

    We have been so happy with our decision to send our son to Xaverian!
    He has benefited from the strong academic program. He is met with academic rigor and and offered the opportunity to be challenged in a way that I'm not sure would have happened at our local public high school.

    Communication from the school and access to information is excellent. When he needs support, the academic centers have been an invaluable resource.

    He has participated in an official school sport each semester which has challenged him both physically and mentally.

    Xaverian has also led to personal growth in our son, through activities such as Spirit Hawk, Sophomore Retreat and service at Christmas in the City.

    We enthusiastically recommend Xaverian Brothers High School!
    From an academic, athletic, extracurricular, and spiritual perspective, Xaverian is excellent. Courses are challenging, and academic centers are available to get direct help from teachers with anything you need, and most of the teachers themselves are very friendly and approachable. There are many cut and no-cut sports that the school offers, and some of the varsity teams are the best in the state. There are numerous clubs after school, and there are some very everybody, every single day. The campus ministry program is amazing. It has understanding and entertaining ministers that make all students feel welcome. Many outstanding programs and retreats are offered throughout the year. The atmosphere of this all-boys school is very comfortable, but it can get a bit lonely since the only interaction with girls is through the theater program. It is a little bit expensive, but a fair amount of scholarships are offered, and the price is well worth it.
