Where there is interest, there is memory, which is why our teachers create thought-provoking, interactive experiences that spark curiosity and imagination.
Our engineering students build bridges with straws to understand mass-to-weight ratios. Forensic science students dust for fingerprints and solve crimes (don’t worry; they’re staged crimes). Students interested in architecture create renderings of famous structures, while those studying French can visit France to see if they can “talk the talk.” All students get to experiment using state-of-the-art equipment in our six science labs. And, biology students “go wild” in 1,137 acres of land and water at Hale Reservation. Reality-based, hands-on, and out-of-classroom experiences make learning fun, meaningful, memorable and, whenever possible, adventurous.
“Xaverian prepared me for college exceptionally well. The work ethic that Xaverian developed in me allowed me to achieve all A's in my first semester at a college that seemed like a reach for me."
While all grade 9-12 courses at Xaverian cover college-preparatory material, we offer four unique course levels:
AP - Advanced Placement H - Honors A - Accelerated CP - College Prep
Students are placed into specific levels based on entrance results, placement exam results, and previous grades. Some schools place students in the same level across the curriculum. Here at Xaverian, you won’t be confined. We place students in levels on a subject-by-subject basis according to their strengths so a student can sharpen skills where he excels, while he continues to improve them in another area. And, there’s always the opportunity to move up!
Xaverian is a Catholic, college-preparatory school for boys in grades 7-12. As an inclusive community, we embrace diverse experiences and perspectives, welcoming students and families from all faiths and backgrounds. Through exceptional academics, athletics, the arts, faith formation, and service opportunities, we help young men discover their unique gifts and talents so they can share them with a world in need.
