Xaverian High School is a private Catholic high school located in Brooklyn, NY. Grades 9-12 offer a college prep program and grades 6-8 are a middle school.

The school was founded in 1957 by the Xaverian Brothers.[2] The school is a member of the Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA). Xaverian is governed by a President and Board of Trustees. It is operated independently of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn. As of October 2017 the school had a total student population of 1,045. 769 students identified as White/Caucasian, 149 as Hispanic/Latino, 68 as Black/African American, 41 as Asian/Pacific Islander, 2 as Native American/Alaskan Native, 1 as Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and 15 as two or more races. On March 5, 2015, the Board of Trustees made a decision to incorporate co-education to the high school, beginning in 2016. The school's first boys and girls class has been admitted for the 2016-2017 school year. Xaverian High School also has a sister school located in Bruges, Belgium called the Sint-Franciscus-Xaveriusinstituut and maintains a yearly cultural exchange program with the school allowing exchange students to come to New York City in the fall and Xaverian students to go to Belgium in the winter.[3][4][5]
