Our social/emotional support does not begin or end with the classroom. In fact, we support many of our students by supporting their families, as well. Whether it be hosting parent support groups during difficult times or offering psychological support to parents or siblings of students, Xavier families know that we care about their full lives.
All in this Together
The Xavier community would be nothing without our families. We understand that our students wouldn’t be able to grow, learn and thrive without the support of their families,. As such, it’s important that we extend our support beyond our students’ success in the classroom. Xavier offers myriad social/emotional and wellness support and resources to parents, caregivers and siblings of students.
FOX Parent Teacher Organization
Friends of Xavier (FOX) is the Parent Teacher Organization of Xavier Academy. FOX meets monthly to keep parents informed and involved with their child’s education...any beyond. Joining FOX is a great way to connect with other parents and build relationships with your child’s teachers. We also invite relevant experts to meetings to engage our parents surrounding their families’ larger needs. For instance, a recent meeting hosted a financial advisor to share tips and tricks for applying for financial or merit-based scholarships and preparing for college-based finances.

Mental Health Resources
We believe that the mental health of Xavier families is intrinsically tied to the mental health of our students. Therefore, we want to do our part in cultivating a peaceful home environment for our students by extending mental health support to their parents and siblings. All mental health practitioners, resources and programming available to our students is also accessible to their families. Xavier parents and siblings have full access to our team of mental health professionals, parenting courses and student support groups.
