So, Why St. John's?

All Boys, All the Time: Since 1907, our mission has been to educate young men. And after more than 100 years, we think we do a pretty good job. We know how to keep them curious and engaged. We foster confidence in the classroom. We celebrate their successes, and support them when they need it. 

Our Xaverian Values: The Xaverian Brothers' spiritual values—compassion, humility, simplicity, trust, and zeal—play a huge role in daily life and learning. 

Opportunities Abound: A big school means big opportunities. With dozens of clubs, athletic teams, recreational activities, electives, service opportunities, and more, students find their niche, no matter what their interests are. 

An Eagle for Life: The focus on enduring, personal relationships is a hallmark of a Xaverian education. Our students belong to a legacy that transcends time and place, and are bound together by a shared identity and mission.
