Xaverian is proud to offer many different types of aid for students and families.  Each year, Xaverian distributes approximately $3.4 million in academic merit-based scholarships and need-based financial aid from our Endowment Fund. Xaverian also offers scholarships to sons/daughters of the NYPD and FDNY.  All of these offerings are outlined below, along with application procedures.  Please note that Xaverian does not offer Athletic Scholarships. 

Academic Scholarships

Students interested in receiving academic scholarship must sit for Xaverian’s Scholarship exam on Saturday, December 1st,  2018.  Students must have at least a 90 overall average to sit for this exam and students indicate interest for this exam on Xaverian’s Online Application.  Scholarship awards are based on the scholarship exam, TACHS test, application content, letters of recommendation, and student grades.  Scholarships are awarded to students over four years, subject to maintaining academic requirements.

Music Scholarships

Students that have had at least a few years of musical experience are encouraged to audition for a music scholarship.  Music auditions should be scheduled directly with Mr. Joseph Loposky, Director of Music at Xaverian, at (718) 836-7100, extension 177.  Music auditions usually happen the second or third week in December.  Mr. Loposky will arrange the exact date and time as well as let you know what to prepare.

Students can receive both Academic and Music Scholarships!
