The XBSS Sponsorship Office provides services to the schools operating out of a sense of Gospel mission that is reflected in the mission of the Church and of the Xaverian Brothers. The XBSS Office exercises a strategic perspective by providing collaborative, flexible, and futuristic planning which preserves, protects and enhances the Xaverian educational tradition while addressing the evolving needs of the sponsored schools.
Orientation programs for new faculty and board members, annual meetings of administrators, faculty leaders and board members, a student leadership retreat and other activities provide ongoing formation for all members of the XBSS community.
Our Spiritual Values
Partners in mission and students of the Xaverian Brother Sponsored School community are called to be animated by these values as they live and work together under the protection and guidance of St. Francis Xavier and all those who have gone before us.
The call to embrace our Catholic identity and Xaverian charism as partners in the church’s mission of evangelization within its ministry of education.
Our Governance Model
One of the most important factors in the success or failure of Catholic schools is the effectiveness of its leadership provided by whatever model of governance is in effect. This is our governance model.
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.
Theodore James Ryken, the founder of the Xaverian Brothers, was born August 30, 1797 in the little village of Elshout, North Brabant, Holland, of middle class parents whose ardent Catholicity is the only thing that is now known of them.
