Welcome, I still remember the day the Xavier counseling department received news that our first soon-to-be-graduate had been accepted into college. It worked! The school had been open for only four years, and we’d made all sorts of promises to our students and families that we were doing our very best to prepare our young men and women for college. Graduates from the class of 2010 are now graduating from college, and they’re sending us news of their plans for jobs, graduate school, and travel. Xavier graduates a new class of seniors this spring, and from all appearances, we’re still doing a great job; our students continue to gain admissions to some of the best schools in California and across the United States.
The foundation of Xavier’s success is a complex web of relationships. In many ways we build on the good work that our students’ families do, the excellent preparation provided by the many schools who send students to Xavier, and, of course, the tenacity and intelligence of the students themselves. Keep in mind that being “successful” at a Jesuit school means growing in all five areas of the Profile of the Graduate at Graduation. We hope that all of our students are:
- Open to Growth
- Committed to Social Justice
- Loving and Compassionate
- Intellectually Competent
If you’re visiting our web site as a prospective parent or student, I hope you are compelled to come and visit campus and meet some of our teachers and students. At Xavier, or efforts to form young men and women for others begin and end in Jesus. I hope you’ll come and learn more about this wonderful place!
