ACADEMICS AT XAVIER
Xavier Academy is an independent private school offering personalized curricula and an extraordinarily low student-to-teacher ratio for grades 5-12. We emphasize academic success, personal growth and social skills development in a rich and stimulating environment.
What makes us special (outside of our dynamic student body and committed faculty) is our individualized attention to students. We maintain a very low student-to-teacher ratio, at most, 7- 1, often 5-1 or even 1-1, depending on the student’s needs. In taking this sort of approach in everything we do, we address the needs of our student population head on. Our students’ needs and talents are unique, and therefore, our responses are unique.
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 environment in which each student is encouraged to realize his or her 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.
OUR CORE VALUES
Each student develops immense pride in the work they accomplish whether it be through academics or community service.
Each student is encouraged to work independently, so they quickly learn to hold themselves accountable for their work.
Each student is keenly aware that our educators genuinely care for them, so mutual respect is a natural outcome.
Each student realizes that they have a right to be valued, and more importantly, they learn to treat themselves with the proper respect.
Our Dynamic Student Body
How We Support Our Students
Our elementary school programming was created to meet the growing needs of our students and families.
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.
Our high school programming continues to build on the independent foundation from our elementary and middle-school courses and prepares students for college life.
Xavier Academy offers an abundance of courses necessary to matriculate to higher levels of education. Our faculty ensures our coursework is comparable to (and at times, more advanced) the top academic institutions across the city and state.
Our college counseling services are another one of the many ways our faculty helps prepare students for collegiate success...and beyond.
At Xavier, we know that a conventional school year may not be the best fit for many of our students, which is why part of our individualized approach involves alternative scheduling and year-round learning options.
We recognize that many of our students are capable of starting their collegiate journey early. Through our partnership with Lonestar College, we're able to help them do just that.
In order to best serve our students, we meet each student where he, she or 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.
