Guidance & Counseling
Xavier’s guidance counselors help students recognize their strengths and guide students to achieve their goals over their four years at Xavier. Counselors work to develop each student’s individuality, sense of responsibility, personal initiative, and leadership. By working closely with faculty and parents, counselors assist students in achieving their highest personal and scholarly potential. In most cases, the student works with the same Guidance Counselor through her senior year.
