Mission Statement

     Xaverian High School is a college preparatory school which provides educational opportunity for learners of all types. Rooted in the missionary charism of St. Francis Xavier and consistent with the principles and commitment of the founder of the Xaverian Brothers in America, Theodore Ryken, Xaverian High School is dedicated to the development of the person through academic excellence, extracurricular involvement, and Christian service to neighbor and community.

    Faithful to the spirit of its founder, Theodore James Ryken, Xaverian High School responds creatively to the challenges of the present and the future by being a place in which people are attentive to the Lord's call to learn, to serve and to become contributors to the freedom, beauty, and wholeness of themselves and others; where people are prepared to serve their brothers and sisters in ways that are appropriate to their dignity as children of God, and thus become persons living in close relationship with Jesus, their brother.

    Xaverian High School is one of 12 Xaverian Brothers' Sponsored Schools.The Xaverian Brothers view the mission of its sponsored schools as that of bringing forth Christ to the people in the school communities. To ensure the integrity of the communication of God's message to these school communities and the conformity of individual lives and teachings to that message, the sponsors see as essential the need to listen carefully and continually to the movement of the Spirit and to nurture the life of the Spirit in the individual schools.
