Our Mission

Xaverian Brothers High School, a Catholic college-preparatory school for boys, cherishes its identity as a Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School. Drawing on the traditions of the past, living in the strength of the present, and preparing for the needs of the future, Xaverian Brothers High School is a community of faith and learning that is committed to developing the integration of spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, emotional, cultural, and social dimensions within each young man. Through participation in academic, extracurricular, athletic, and campus ministry programs, a Xaverian graduate will be prepared to meet the demands of higher education, to contribute to society, and to answer the call of Christian service.



The Ryken Award

The Ryken Award is given annually to a Xaverian faculty or staff member who is nominated by their coworkers. This special award was established in 1993 to recognize the recipient’s commitment to the vision of Theodore Ryken, founder of the Xaverian Brothers, and to honor their dedication to the core values of Xaverian Brothers education. It is the highest award bestowed to an adult member of the Xaverian community.
