All tuition and fees are collected online through Tuition Management.  Tuition and fees may be paid by credit card or automatic withdrawal from a savings or checking account.  There is a $50 annual enrollment fee with Tuition Management.  

Plan A:  Payment in full on or before July 25, 2024.

Plan B: A two-payment option with payments due on or before July 25, 2024 and December 5, 2024.  

Plan C:  Monthly payment plan beginning in July 2024.  Payments are automatically deducted from your account on a ten-month payment schedule.  All students’ tuition must be paid in full by April 2025.   

Tuition refund policy: If a student withdrawal is authorized for good cause by the Administration, and if the normal withdrawal procedure of discussion with guidance personnel, parents, and academic administrators has been followed, a written request may be made for a refund of tuition. Down payments and other fees are never refundable. If a student is expelled, there shall be no refund of tuition.  Selection of payment options is a financial accommodation to parents and does not relieve them of the responsibility to complete the tuition for that year.

The following guidelines, applied in relation to the full-year tuition only, will serve as the basis to determine tuition refunds.

  • Prior to Aug. 1, 2024, students withdrawing from school will forfeit any deposit and fees paid but will be entitled to complete reimbursement of any other tuition dollars paid.
  • Students withdrawing after the first week of school are entitled to a refund of tuition monies paid in excess of 50% of the annual tuition. Parents, who choose payment option C, are required to complete the payment of 50% of the tuition.
  • Students withdrawing on or after Feb. 1, 2025 are not entitled to a refund.

Only students who take the Entrance Exam in November at Xavier and who are placed fully in the honors program are eligible for these scholarships. The scholarships apply to tuition only and are renewable for four years for students who maintain a minimum 3.25 grade point average and are fully enrolled in honors courses. Scholarships are announced in December.

Any student who matriculates directly from a Catholic K-8 school will receive a $1,000 discount each year they are enrolled at Xavier. In the event a student has a sibling attending Mercy/Xavier and applies from a Catholic K-8 school, the Catholic School discount applies and not the Sibling Discount. This is so the family will receive this for all four years a student is at Xavier.
As of January 1, 2018, the Connecticut Higher Education Trust (CHET) allows up to $10,000 per year, per student, to be withdrawn - free from federal tax - from a 529 plan for tuition expenses at private or religious high schools.

Each year Xavier High School sends students off to some of the finest universities and colleges in the land. The Class of 2021 was no different. Williams, Northeastern, Villanova, Notre Dame, UConn, Fairfield, Hartford, Quinnipiac, Holy Cross, Assumption, George Washington, Penn State ... and the list goes on and on. Some stats:

100: Percentage of students who take SAT or ACT.
