- Music - Is music and song your thing? At St. X, we have multiple ways for students to learn and explore their personal melodies. Classes include Choir, Band, Music, AP Music Theory, Guitar, Strings, and Percussion Ensemble. We also have quite a few music clubs which perform regularly, like the Chamber Blues, Jazz Band, Men in Black (string ensemble), Pep Band, and of course the St. X Marching Band. Further information and galleries can be found on the Music & Dance page.
- Dance - Are you interested in stress relief and physical challenge? Dance lowers stress and stimulates recognition of patterns and sequence, increases spacial and emotional awareness, improves memory, and promotes creativity and physical wellness. Skills are developed through extensive exploration of the dance elements in order to develop skill for all dance techniques and styles. Dance here at St. X offers students a physical experience while demanding real world skills of ambition, work ethic, and passion. More information can be found on the Music & Dance page.
- Theatre Xavier (TX) - Performing in the amazing Walter C. Deye SJ Performance Center, TX puts on shows that push the limits of what can be done in theater at the high school level, and allows students to learn every facet of bringing a live performance together. Lighting crews, sound design crews, stage design and construction crews, video design crews, musicians, and the actors are all either students or led by students. There is a spot for anyone!
