Xaverian’s Genesis Program is dedicated to providing an engaging and challenging middle school program for academically talented girls and boys in grades 6-8. This co-educational program is designed to develop and nurture high-level critical thinking skills and is committed to the development of the middle school student through academic excellence, extracurricular involvement, and Christian service to neighbor and community. A Genesis education encompasses and surpasses the standard middle school curriculum by offering:
+ A fully interactive, one-to-one learning environment complete with an iPad for each student and classrooms equipped with Apple TVs
+ The Michael T. Strianese ’74 STEM Program at Xaverian offers project and problem based learning through hands-on classroom experiences in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The Gateway to Technology program engages students with modules in Design and Modeling, as well as Automation and Robotics. The highly acclaimed program is offered through a partnership with Project Lead the Way (PLTW), the nation’s leading provider of STEM programs.
+ Enriched religious studies firmly rooted in the Church’s teaching, with an emphasis on sacred scripture, the understanding of Jesus, and the Catholic social tradition
+ Full-time guidance counselors
+ Extracurricular activities and clubs, including Science Olympiad, Mock Trial, Speech and Debate, Student Newspaper, and LEGO Robotics
The Genesis Open House is the opportunity for prospective students and their parents to meet our teachers, administrators, current students and parents. Families will learn about our innovative, enriched curriculum, visit the cutting-edge computer labs, and be introduced to our renowned music program and extracurricular offerings.
We invite you to learn more about the Genesis legacy of success at our Open House on December 1st at 6:30pm. We look forward to meeting you!
