Explore a Xavier Education

A Catholic education should be committed to pursuing and enriching students' intellectual abilities with academic excellence in the service of Christ and His Church. Xavier Catholic Schools challenges our students to be their very best.

Our commitment to academic excellence is reflected in our curriculum, extracurricular activities, sports, and throughout our campuses. We provide students with a wide variety of opportunities to explore new horizons both intellectually and academically. Our programs ignite curiosity, creativity, and purpose.

Superintendent's Letter

Dear Xavier Community,

Catholic education is known for its focus on academic excellence and emphasis on values and ethics. In 1864, St. Mary Parish opened the first Catholic school in Appleton. Catholic schools in Appleton have a long history of providing high quality education to students. We are proud to continue that tradition in the Xavier System.

Xavier has built a strong reputation for rigorous academic programs and providing a supportive and caring learning environment. Xavier places a strong emphasis on character development and spiritual formation with an aim to nurture well-rounded students. We are committed to the individual growth of our students and cultivating their talents and passions. We strive to provide meaningful opportunities for our students to develop a lifelong love and commitment to learning, the arts and service to the community.

In Christ,

Dr. John Ravizza
