Mission Statement

We believe that:

Through a Catholic education, rooted in the Xaverian tradition and continued with the Marist charism, students will bring to life the richness of their faith through their service and conduct.

A demanding academic program delivered in a safe learning environment forms the foundation for scholastic growth and success by developing organizational skills, encouraging problem solving, fostering a zeal for learning while promoting independent thinking and effective communication.

Students develop a sense of accomplishment in a welcoming community that recognizes the unique gifts, talents, and skills of each individual through academics, athletics, fine arts and extracurricular activities.

The school community is committed to the principles of fairness, dignity, and moral conduct rooted in Gospel values.
Students learn civic responsibility through participation and leadership in service to their local, national, and faith communities.
Educating young men from diverse geographical, religious and socio-economic backgrounds and abilities lies at the heart of our calling.
