Great Books Curriculum
Students in the integrated program of English, Theology, and Social Studies receive a 4-year Great Books diploma. Approximately 10% of incoming Xavier students are selected for the program each year. Xavier Admissions Office will determine a student’s placement into the Great Books program based on her reading scores and overall achievement on the Xavier Entrance Exam, teacher recommendations, and middle school grades.
