Do not come here. The resources are terrible in terms of college readiness and academics outside of sports are poor, with a low amount of AP courses to boot. You cannot "sully" the name of this "amazing school" where apparently you pay 20,000 dollars for a mediocre education. Fordham is better folks, GO THERE! The sports here are good, but anything else? Absolutely not. A bunch of kids that came here complain that their parents force them or otherwise some folks are just outright "brainwashed" about the school.
Or you have kids like me that the school for what it is. Please any 8th graders reading this, (or 7th,) get good grades and go to somewhere like Bard, Eleanor, or any of the specialized schools. If you have to choose between Fordham and Xavier go to Fordham. They have a better campus and are way more lenient. If I could go back to study, I 100% would've improved my grades and SHSAT score. Don't get yourself stuck here, it really isn't a pleasant experience in any way.

I think that Xavier High School is a great place to go to school. There are over one thousand students so everyone can find their groups of close friends. Xavier High School offers many clubs and sports activities. The cool thing about our clubs is that most of them take place during the day. There is a period in everyone's schedule that's called community period and students can do what they need to do during that time like homework, talking to teachers, and club activities. They also offer summer immersion trips across the country and Central America. These immersion trips are usually dedicated to building houses and shelters in places where they are needed. The teachers here want you to learn and their classes are fun if you decide to engage. I feel comfortable talking to my teachers if I need any help. The guidance department here is also amazing. I talk to my guidance counselor almost every day, and I feel very comfortable telling her how I feel and if there is anything wrong.
I am a Freshman parent & we are thrilled with our son’s experience at Xavier. He is in the Ignatian Scholar program. The academics are rigorous. His teachers are engaged and interesting. Our son was involved in a sport as well, and it was an A+ venture. We will be sending our other son to Xavier as well!
