Welcome to Xavier

Dear Prospective Xavier Student and her family:
Thank you for your interest in Xavier College Preparatory.  We know that the selection of a high school is a very important one, and we encourage your serious consideration of Xavier as you begin to evaluate your options. 
As a Catholic school for young women, Xavier offers a unique faith-based environment with an outstanding college preparatory curriculum.  As we begin this school year of 2019-2020, we are celebrating our 77th year of the tradition of excellence that has been a Xavier hallmark since St. Francis Parish and the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (the BVM’s) opened the school in 1943.
We are committed to our mission of preparing young women of faith with the skills, integrity and confidence they will need to meet the demands of a constantly changing global society. In addition to our comprehensive college prep curriculum in the classroom, our students continue their learning outside the classroom through their participation and leadership in a precedent-setting service-learning program, the performing and visual arts, championship athletic teams, and the more than 60 clubs on campus.
As they participate in all aspects of their Xavier experience, our students broaden their life experiences as they grow spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally. Our caring and committed faculty challenges and supports our students as they encourage them to explore and expand their interests, knowledge, and talents in their pursuit of excellence.
Please feel free to contact the Xavier Admissions Office at 602-240-3104 if you have additional questions.
Thank you,
Paula Petrowski
Director of Admissions
