Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools

The Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools (XBSS) is a network of 13 Roman Catholic schools sharing a common mission and a similar governance structure. Educating more than 11,000 students annually, most 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.

Our Mission

Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools serve the Catholic Church’s educational mission by forming young people to be faith-filled contemplative leaders who address the evolving needs of our world.

Understanding the Xaverian Way

Within our Xaverian communities, we strive to achieve the vision of our founder, Theodore James Ryken, to "mutually, help, encourage, and edify one another, and to work together." We are all partners in mission with the Xaverian Brothers. This document outlines the common language, charism, and spirituality that unites Xaverian schools. 

Our Schools

The XBSS network includes thirteen schools that serve more than 11,000 students and families. The schools range in size from 400 to 1,500 students and are located in Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut.
