Join us for our 2nd Annual Xavier Day:
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Thank you to all those who participated in our first ever Xavier Day! Our Inaugural Xavier Day was a huge success, raising just over $51,000 and we have you to thank.  We had a wonderful time showing our support for Xavier Catholic Schools and we hope you did too.  On May 24th we witnessed how special the Xavier community is through shared social media posts, worn Xavier apparel, contributions made to continue the excellence that is Xavier Catholic Schools, and most importantly, through the memories and new traditions that were made.  

In case you missed us on May 24th, it is never too late to make a donation to Xavier Catholic Schools.  Click here to be directed to our donation page.

What is Xavier Day?  It is the opportunity for our parents, alumni, dedicated faculty and staff, current and future students, friends of the Xavier community, and newest alumni; the Class of 2017 seniors (graduating on Xavier Day) to join us and celebrate the pride you have for Xavier Catholic Schools. 
There are several ways you can participate!

Wear your favorite Xavier gear. There are many ways to show your Xavier pride.  Rep your favorite t-shirt, hat, or sweatshirt.  Sip out of your Xavier coffee mug.  Put out the Xavier yard sign.  The possibilities are endless!  Be sure to share what your wear on social media.
Care by making a donation to Xavier Catholic Schools Annual Fund, Angel Fund or the Xavier Catholic Schools Foundation.   No gift is too small and every donation plays a vital role in maintaining and improving the excellence of Xavier Catholic Schools, and furthers its position as the area’s most premier Catholic educational experience.  

Share your Xavier pride on Twitter and Instagram using #XavierDay.  Like us on Facebook @xaviercatholicschools to see our own shared posts throughout the day.  Visit our share page (below).  The share page will reload each hour to display Twitter and Instagram posts using #XavierDay.  
Please note: in order for your posts to be visible on the share page, you must set your social media privacy settings to public on Instagram and Twitter. Facebook users can choose to make an individual post public in order for it to load to our feed but it is not a guarentee the hashtag will pull.  For best results, use Twitter or Instagram.
