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.

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.
