Xavier Academy is an independent private school offering personalized curriculums and an extraordinarily low student-to-teacher ratio. We emphasize academic success, personal growth and social skills development in a rich and stimulating environment.
What other schools don’t understand is that every student is unique in their abilities, interests and learning styles. This is why our committed Xavier faculty make it a priority to give individualized attention to each student in a way that greatly increases the student’s chance of success, both at Xavier and in their future endeavors. We address the needs of our student population head on and maintain very low student-to-teacher ratios to ensure that each student gets the one-on-one help and attention they deserve.
At Xavier, we believe that every student can learn and thrive in the right environment, and that sometimes all a student needs is a more individualized approach to succeed. Our mission is to provide a supportive, nurturing space in which each student is encouraged to realize their potential and where caring staff accelerates learning and personal growth in a stimulating and positive atmosphere. We offer a customized and flexible approach to learning for students as we help them grow socially, academically and personally.
We’re preparing our students for the future, which means not only helping them grow academically but socially, professionally and personally as well. We want each student growing out of Xavier to not only have the knowledge needed in life, but the application skills as well. This is why we offer additional resources and activities such as Community Wednesdays and our licensed therapists to raise well-rounded members of society.

Our Dynamic Student Body
How We Support Our Students
Middle school is a critical moment in every student’s journey, and Xavier’s individualized approach is often a perfect fit for students as they make the transition from elementary school to high school. We provide each student with a safe space to learn and develop their academic skills and habits.
Our high school programming continues to build on the independent foundation from our elementary and middle-school courses and prepares students for college life. We give our students the chance to get involved in the community through various volunteer opportunities and learn more about non-academic, “real world” topics such as nutrition and wellness.
Xavier Academy offers an abundance of courses necessary to matriculate to higher levels of education. Our faculty and coursework meets and exceeds state requirements and the top academic institutions across the city and state. We follow the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum in addition to offering courses in response to our student body’s unique needs.
Our college counseling services are another one of the many ways our faculty helps prepare students for collegiate success...and beyond. We take time to give each student individualized help and guidance so they can equally balance school work and the application process.
At Xavier, one size does not fit all. We know a conventional school year may not be the best fit for all of our students. At Xavier, one size does not fit all. Our individualized approach involves flexible scheduling and year-round learning options to ensure our students have the best chance of success.
We recognize that many of our students are capable of starting their collegiate journey early. Through our AP courses and our partnerships with Lonestar College and HCC, we're able to help our students get a head start on their collegiate journey.
In order to best serve our students, we meet each student where they currently are. We build them up based on their strengths and intervene through mental health and wellness best practices if and when we recognize it would benefit our students.
Our mix of traditional and unique extracurricular activities at Xavier gives students the opportunity to gain invaluable skills in and out of the classroom. Students are often encouraged to share their unique interests to staff in order to utilize their skills within the school. Our mission of leading the way in academic excellence emphasizes the importance of getting involved.
A healthy lifestyle is just as important as a healthy mindset. We believe incorporating physical activity into the school day is important for students. Additionally, Xavier Academy offers after-school athletics programs through TAPPS, in which students can participate in sports teams such as golf and tennis, stimulating true sportsmanship and wholesome competition.
