Student Support - XHS Counseling Department
The Xavier School Counseling Department encourages each student to understand his/her unique abilities and tries to foster the growth of the individual. Growth - socially, educationally and personally - causes stress. The School Counseling Department assists the student in coping with the stresses of adolescence. We also encourage each student to formulate educational and career goals and help him/her make steps to reach those goals. The Xavier School Counseling Department is based on the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model and the American School Counseling Association National Model, with specific implementation developed as a cohort of school counselors across the Diocese of Green Bay.

Junior Parent Night
All parents of juniors are invited to Junior Parent Night on Wednesday, January 17th at 6:30 PM in the XHS theater. We will cover junior course selection, graduation requirements, college visits, creating the college application list, and extras like placement exams (ACT/SAT), faith exploration opportunities, and using Naviance to manage their college applications. Your students do not need to attend because they will receive this information in school over the course of second semester. Counselors also discuss these topics individually with students during their junior visits. We look forward to seeing you!
For Our Juniors
Welcome to your junior year! Here are some do's and don'ts to remember throughout the year to help you stay on track for college.
Meet Lady, our therapy dog!
We are blessed to have Lady on the staff of Xavier High School. Her furry face makes our days so much brighter! And there are many benefits to having a therapy dog at school, including:
- Physical benefits
Interaction with therapy dogs has been shown to reduce blood pressure, provide physical stimulation, and assist with pain management.
- Social benefits
Therapy dogs help promote greater self-esteem and focused interaction with others.
- Cognitive benefits
It has been empirically proven that therapy dogs stimulate memory and problem-solving skills.
- Emotional and mental health benefits
Therapy dogs can lift moods, often provoking laughter. They offer friendship and a shoulder to lean on for students and staff alike.
