Xavier on Social Media

We’re proud to share more about the incredible work of our counselor Melanie, as she launches a new program at Xavier! Her Mindful Self-Compassion course is available to students to help teens navigate the demands and stress of their lives. We hope this resource will prove to be invaluable to our community as we continue to prioritize mental health as a foundation for education.

An esports club provides students with a sense of community and can foster digital citizenship skills. Here’s what you need to know to get started.

We’re so excited to bring an esports program to our Xavier community! This innovative new class is a great way to develop key skills such as strategic thinking, analysis, and problem-solving skills. Students will also learn important life lessons such as maintaining healthy competitive mindsets and good sportsmanship.

Important update for our Xavier community! Due to continued power disruptions and the request to conserve power, all classes will be canceled through the remainder of the week. We hope to hold parent teacher conferences as scheduled on Friday and will continue to provide updates as warranted. Stay safe out there! 💙💛

One of the special things about Xavier is our mission to stay cutting-edge by offering unique and innovative new programs to supplement our students’ educational experiences. Our latest development in this area is the creation of an exclusive esports course for our students, in partnership with the one and only Karlin Oei, founder of Ekuso. We're so excited to bring this unique program to Xavier!

Make sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, April 8th! We’ll be holding our annual Spring FUNdraiser outdoors at the Armadillo Palace.

The venue normally holds up to 400 people but will be limited to the first 150 parents and sponsors. Still not comfortable getting out? We are working on a way to include you as well. This is our biggest event of the year so we do not want anyone left out! Tickets will go on sale next month so be sure to look for more information then and check out our website for all the details! https://bit.ly/36eKsSa

Our socially-distanced learning provides an opportunity for our students to connect and collaborate in a safe way this year. We're so thankful to our students, families and faculty for their flexibility as we navigate new approaches to education!
