8th Grade Day is a special day for 8th Graders who are interested in applying to Xavier. This year it is scheduled for Friday, October 25, 2019 beginning at 9:30 a.m. and ending at 1:00 p.m. Scheduled activities for 8th Grade Day include a welcome assembly, student-led classroom visits, and an all-school pep rally. Lunch will be provided.
We ask that all visitors wear a WHITE SHIRT with short or long sleeves (no tank tops or spaghetti straps) for the fun rally experience on this day!
If your daughter wears a uniform skirt in the school she is currently attending, it is easiest if she wears it to Xavier for her visit, as this is a good conversation starter.
If your daughter does not wear a uniform, then appropriate dress for 8th Graders is required in keeping with the XCP dress code: if a non-uniform skirt is worn, it may be no shorter than the top of the knee; no shorts; jeans are allowable but they may not have any rips, holes, or frayed edges; no tank tops; no spaghetti straps; and no flip-flops.
