  • Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools

    The Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools is a network of Roman Catholic secondary schools who share a common mission and a similar governance structure. Most of the Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools trace their origin directly to the Congregation of the Brothers of St. Francis Xavier (Xaverian Brothers) and its mission of evangelization through the ministry of education. Other XBSS schools have come to embrace the Xaverian governance model and mission after a history of association with other religious congregations or dioceses. Each school, however, has its own particular identity, history and tradition and incarnates its mission in unique ways.
