At St. Xavier High School, a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, we are committed to being the rigorous college preparatory school in greater Cincinnati where exceptional boys from diverse backgrounds transform into academically accomplished men for others who are prepared to discern and successfully carry out God's plan for their lives and to serve as leaders in our rapidly changing world.

We Believe

That rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, the school is an apostolic mission by:

  • Naming Jesus Christ as the model for all human life

  • Affirming the world as God's creation and therefore good, but in need of redemption

  • Recognizing family and community as a context for redemption

  • Providing students with comprehensive instruction in Catholic beliefs and practice

  • Providing students with opportunities for spiritual formation in the Catholic faith through participation in the sacraments, prayer, retreats, service and other spiritual programs
