WELCOME TO THE OFFICE OF ADVANCEMENT AT XAVIER HIGH SCHOOL

We would like to thank our donors who contribute to the Xavier High School community. Xavier is supported by the generosity of alumni, parents, grandparents, students and friends through a variety of ways.

The purpose of the Advancement Office is to secure financial resources and other support for the school and enhance alumni relations while advancing the mission of Xavier.

Xavier is not known for standing still. We are committed to fostering the spiritual, academic and physical growth of our students. We are committed to giving them the best resources possible so they can realize their God-given talents and reach their full potential.

From our alumni golf tournament (which in 2018 raised more than $57,000 for financial aid) to our many endowed scholarships (one recipient saying, “I will push to be the best version of myself on a daily basis.”), your generosity plays out in real life.

Our annual drive funds many things that make Xavier a special place, one that helps send graduates out to the world prepared to respond to the Christian call of our school motto, “Be a Man.”
