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.
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 build improve in another area. And, there’s always the opportunity to move up!
