And when you hear them talk about "Brothers for Life" on campus, they really mean it!
The younger HS kids take the middle schoolers under their wing, just like the upperclassmen watch out for the younger HS students.
we could not ask for more and consider their time at Xaverian to be a gift we will always be deeply grateful for -- and it is a fun place to be! As each day passes he appreciates more and more how is 4 years a Xaverian prepared him for college.
He was not one of the "top performers" at XBHS (middle of the pack,) but while there he developed study and homework habits that made the transition to college absolutly seamless.
Great Schools is a national nonprofit organization.
At Xaverian, young men discover the true meaning of strength in an inclusive community where the dignity of each person is respected so that all can thrive.A few months later we saw examples of the brotherhood with my older son who was a freshman at the time.He was training with the lacrosse team and he needed rides back and forth to workouts.Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll visit Xaverian High School in Brooklyn to hear how they changed a half a century tradition of same sex education.We’ll also hear how a catholic school in Detroit makes getting a job part of a student’s homework…and we’ll spend an academic minute with a whole lot of single people.Whenever we have a question or concern we are met with a smile and 'how can we help' from anyone at XB.Not every school is the same and there are many to choose from, but Xaverian Brothers High School is worth the time and look if you have a son who you would like to see excel in a strong and supportive way from his school.His first year in college he saw how students coming in from some very good public schools hadn't developed the dicipline and skill sets necessary to make the freshman year in college, and most espically the first semester, a successful one.High expectations are set at XBHS, and they don't want to hear excuses if you don't perform to your potential.Xaverian has really committed to understanding and investing in those things that make a learning environment more accessible for boys.The academic environment is rigorous, but all of the supports are in place to teach the students to self-advocate and succeed.
