Xavier High School (New York City)

Xavier High School is an independent Jesuit university-preparatory secondary school for young men located at 30 West 16th Street, in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It was founded in 1847, as the College of St. Francis Xavier (also known as St. Francis Xavier's College) by Father John Larkin, S.J.

The school draws students from all five boroughs of New York City, as well as New Jersey, Nassau County, Westchester County, Rockland County and Orange County. Xavier is widely considered a brother school to The Notre Dame School, The Marymount School, and Convent of the Sacred Heart.

Xavier is joined by Regis High School, Fordham Preparatory School, Loyola School and St. Peter's Preparatory School as the five Jesuit high schools in the New York City metropolitan area; a sixth, Brooklyn Preparatory School, is now closed.

    If you’re anxious for to shine in the high esthetic line as a man
    of culture rare,
    You must get up all the germs of the transcendental terms, and plant
    them everywhere.
    You must lie upon the daisies and discourse in novel phrases of your
    complicated state of mind,
    The meaning doesn’t matter if it’s only idle chatter of a
    transcendental kind.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
