The mission of the Alumni & Development Team is to build and nurture lifelong relationships and philanthropic investment between Xavier High School, and its alumni, parents, grandparents, donors, and the community while fostering the values of our founders, the Xaverian Brothers.


Simplicity, Humility, Compassion, Zeal and Trust represent the core Xaverian vision that distinguish our way of life as we build investment in the school’s mission to foster the spiritual, academic and physical growth of each student.


Our goal is to provide meaningful opportunities for all of our partners to share their wealth, work and wisdom in the education that fully prepares every Xavier student to respond to the Christian call of the school motto “Be a Man, a Man like Christ.”
