With 68 years of combined experience, our Guidance Department is uniquely qualified to help our students adjust to the challenge of an all-boys, private, Catholic high school and set them up for success.

Our senior class consistently boasts a college acceptance rate of 100% and the class of 2018 had an average SAT score of 1180 – which is 140 points higher than the average student in Connecticut – so the role of our knowledgeable and experienced Guidance Department is particularly important in ensuring the success a student enjoys at Xavier continues well after graduation.

For students who might be struggling or want more structure after school, the Guidance Department has established our brand-new Academic Achievement Center. Open Monday through Thursday after school until 4:30, the AAC is staffed by a faculty member and two student tutors from the National Honor Society and provides space for individual or group work.
