X Breakfast is Coming!
Thursday, Sept. 17
8 a.m.

This year, X Breakfast will be virtual, and we want you to join us! 

Listen to our inspirational speaker Elena Flores Breese '00, who survived the Boston Marathon bombing, while supporting Xavier.

X Breakfast has generated more than $5M toward Xavier's $28M Legacy of Leadership Capital Campaign, helping reduce our campaign balance to $1M. With your support, we can complete our campaign and Finish Strong in 2020!
Xavier Holiday Auction: Noche Buena
We are thrilled to announce that our 48th Annual Holiday Auction, themed Noche Buena, will be held virtually on Nov. 7, 2020.

We Need Your Help!
Although this is not the way we envisioned this year's auction, we are so excited about all the great things we have in store for you!

Check out our auction wish list on Amazon. It's a great way to make each auction package special for everyone. 
It's Time for Senior Treats!

It's a tradition at Xavier to shower our seniors with surprise treats throughout the year.

Even though school might look a little different right now, we need your help to make Senior Treats extra special in these extraordinary times. We are looking for contributions from each family for senior treats. This money will go towards fun treats and take-home gifts for our girls throughout their final year at Xavier. Below is more information:

Click Here to make your donation to Senior Treats 2020-21! If you prefer to contribute via cash or check, please make checks payable to Xavier College Preparatory. Please clearly write your name, your daughter’s name and "Senior Treats" on your donation envelope. Contributions can be dropped off in the Mothers' Guild mailbox in the XCP Bookstore.
