Thank you for your interest in 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.

Please contact our office at admissions@xbhs.com or 781-801-1633 with any questions. We look forward to connecting with you!

Sincerely,

Kevin Loftus ’05
Director of Admissions

  • Will I be able to fit in at Xaverian if I’m not Catholic?

    Absolutely! Although we are a Catholic school, we have many students with diverse faith backgrounds. The word “Catholic” means universal, and we want our students to grow in their faith, regardless of where they may be in their spiritual journey.
  • How will I adjust to Xaverian if I’m currently attending public school?

    Actually, about 60% of Xaverian students come to us from public schools and thrive here. We offer plenty of opportunities to become familiar with our culture and to make friends with fellow students before the school year begins (like special summer programs and orientations), and we’re very clear and upfront with all students about our expectations for the daily life of the school. There’s no surprises and we trust your adjustment will go smoothly.
  • What is it like to attend an all-boys school?

    There are lots of great things to look forward to at an all-boys school. For example, Xaverian students enjoy having reduced social pressure during the school day, frequent opportunities for physical activity, an intentional focus on character education, and teachers who tailor their instruction based on the ways boys learn best.

    Our Head of School, Dr. Jacob Conca recently wrote a blog post titled Six Ways All-Boys Education Can Help Your Son Thrive. Check it out!
