From Xavier College Preparatory High School

On behalf of the Xavier community of alumni, parents, students, and staff, let me extend an invitation to you to come and see what Xavier is about. The fall of 2021 will marked the beginning of our 16th year of educating and forming young people to be men and women for and with others. Xavier celebrates its part in a long, rich tradition of Jesuit education that dates to the middle of the 16th century, when Saint Ignatius Loyola, Saint Francis Xavier, and their early companions began educating students in Messina.

A Xavier education roots itself in the Jesuit legacy of forming young men and women of conscience, competence, and compassion. The world needs leaders who not only know much, but who also know better. A student’s time at Xavier is a constant reminder that we are called to be people who love our brothers and sisters; we lead best when we remember to serve first.

I hope your virtual tour of Xavier entices you to come learn more about our community.
