Xaverian Brothers High School
Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, MA is a Catholic, college-preparatory school for young men founded in 1963. The school enrolls approximately 940 day students in grades seven through twelve from over 60 communities in eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. For more than five decades, Xaverian has specialized in delivering quality education for young men, grounded in the Xaverian values of humility, trust, simplicity, compassion, and zeal.
Grades 7-8 comprise the Francis Xavier Division (FXD) at Xaverian. These students have all of the opportunities of a high school (from sports to clubs and activities), with the added support of specialty curriculum like effective study skills, organization tips, and navigating healthy relationships, in order to help them be successful in high school. Students in grades 9-12 benefit from a program of studies that supports a broad diversity of interests and fosters curiosity in order to engage each young man as he prepares for college. Our curriculum is designed to be challenging and inspiring, to help young men get into their best-fit college and pursue a career with passion. We like to think we’re about more than college-prep – we provide “life prep.” Not only do students learn calculus and world languages; they learn what it means to be a servant leader.
Athletic opportunities abound for all grades (including non-cut teams for the FXD), from golf to ice hockey, and ultimate disc to rugby. Plus, extracurricular activities provide exploration in areas such as the arts, sciences, faith formation, service, and leadership for all ages, from grades 7–12.
