While leadership or activity in athletics can be a factor in determining these awards, athletic ability will not be.

Xcellence Award recipients will be awarded up to $3,000 toward their 2022 – 2023 tuition and will be notified January 12, 2021 with their decision letters.

X-perience Days (Shadowing)

2nd Look icon

Shadowing is an opportunity for 8th graders to get a more personal look at St. Xavier High School while individually shadowing a current student. You may request a certain student that he knows, but if not, we can pair him with a student similar to him.  Additionally, parents will have the opportunity to attend an information session conducted by a St. Xavier administrator and be given a tour of the school. For more details, please see the X-perience Days tab at the bottom of our page.

In order to have your son shadow, you will need to start or continue the application process. You can do that by clicking here: St. Xavier High School (
