A Blessed Holy Triduum from XJA

As we enter into the season of Easter, we humbly ask Christ to guide our actions, that they may always be done through self-giving love in imitation of Christ's example of service, bringing hope and joy to all. Let us pray for the continued work towards XJA's opening.

"So when he had washed their feet [and] put his garments back on and reclined at table again, he said to them, 'Do you realize what I have done for you?'" (John 13:12)

Bond Hill is the Beneficiary of the 2024 Community Makeover Day

Led by the Reds Community Fund, P&G, and Cincinnati Zoo

We're excited to share some incredible news! On Tuesday, March 5th, the Cincinnati Reds, P&G, and the Cincinnati Zoo, announced that Bond Hill is the proud recipient of the 2024 Community Makeover Day, slated for August 1st. This marks the 15th year of this remarkable event, and we're thrilled to announce that the Xavier Jesuit Academy will serve as the anchor project site.

Major partners also supporting the Community Makeover Day are Cincinnati Children’s, GE Aerospace, Kroger, Cincinnati Recreation Commission, along with the community partners United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Cincinnati Public Schools, Cincinnati ToolBank, OneSource, and Duke Energy Foundation.

In the lead-up to the event, these esteemed institutions will dedicate significant resources to supporting the transformation of Bond Hill. More than 400 volunteers will join forces on the day itself to make a tangible difference in our community.

XJA leaders were honored to share our excitement about this announcement through local news media interviews with WLWT Channel 5 News, 700 WLW Radio, and Sacred Heart Radio. Our website has the full press release and news coverage recordings.

We sincerely thank the community for its unwavering love and support as we diligently prepare to welcome students and families to Cincinnati's newest and only Jesuit elementary school this fall. Your encouragement fuels our mission and drives our commitment to making a positive impact. Thank you for being an integral part of our journey.

Warm regards,

Empower XJA Students: Make a Difference today!

You can make the difference for a student and his family at Xavier Jesuit Academy. Ohio EdChoice Scholarships help, but only pay for a portion of the cost of education. Your support will go a long way to help an XJA student and his family. Please consider an investment in expanding educational opportunities that will positively impact tomorrow.
