Your son will be part of a brotherhood and a network recognized for its commitment to learning and achievement.

Other elementary schools employing this model have 97% of their grads attending the high school of their choice and 94% enrollment in postsecondary education. 

XJA is part of a network of Jesuit schools across the United States that operates 28 colleges and universities and 81 primary and secondary schools with a shared goal of developing competent, compassionate, and committed leaders. Cincinnati schools include St. Xavier High School and Xavier University.

Unique and Proven Education Model

Xavier Jesuit Academy is a Nativity model school, characterized by scholarship-funded , a longer school day, extended school year, and small class sizes that engage young learners in education during their formative years. There are currently 16 Jesuit-sponsored Nativity model schools in the U.S. with 12 of these being all-male.

  • Studies show that by 4th grade, African American boys may have already decided school isn’t for them; further engagement can be a struggle.
  • Impact of early intervention can prevent boys from being disillusioned with school.
  • In minority/low-income communities, girls exceed boys in education; there is a need to further uplift boys.

Focus is on developing students who are:

  • Open to growth
  • Intellectually competent
  • Faith-filled & religious
  • Loving 
  • Committed to doing justice
