Since the consolidated ACES Xavier system was formed in 1985, nearly 20,000 students have passed through the hallways of our six campuses – 99% of the Xavier High School graduates continuing on to college. We pride ourselves on promoting quality education through solid curriculum rooted in the Catholic faith.
Our parents share the many benefits of an ACES Xavier education...
"ACES Xavier teachers are passionate, energetic, caring individuals focused on your child's success. The education gives your child the strongest foundation for middle school, high school and beyond. The ideal class sizes and loving environment help your child thrive as an individual."
Warm, Nurturing Community
"We brought my oldest son to Xavier High School and daughter to St. Joseph Middle School from their former schools. We recognized an immediate difference. The families were so welcoming from the Freshman Potluck before school starts to the shared umbrellas at rainy football games. My daughter was more hesitant about the change initially but as soon as the phone began ringing, I saw the impact of her new, positive friendships. I observed the joyful animation in her face as she walked through the halls with her friends.
We have since brought our two other children into the ACES Xavier system. My son joined St. Pius X in the second quarter 5th grade. He said it was the most welcoming school he has ever been at. He still asks in 7th grade to stop by and speak with his 5th grade teacher. Yes, yes, yes, your child and family will fit in!"
"The parents and school community are so incredibly warm and welcoming. Parents are welcome partners in every aspect of their child's education."
"I can't say enough about the before and after care program. Being a single mom with no family in the area, it was a tremendous relief to know there is someone to help before and after school. The Program Director treats each of the kids like her own and is so kind and loving! The kids have a blast and it is amazingly affordable."
"This is the primary reason our children are in the Aces system. We are so impressed with the individual attention. "
"As usual when I picked up my granddaughter from St. Thomas More School I asked her and her friend what was the BEST thing that happened that day. To my amazement, without hesitation they simultaneously yelled out MATH!! What was so special about math I asked? They replied, "Math, not math!" I didn’t get it, then the light went on and I was in awe all over again. These two adorable first graders were each missing their two front teeth! It was MASS that was the BEST part of their day. Wow!!! They went on to tell me the homily about the shepherd with the lamb that quacked. Father Jim, thank you for making MASS the BEST part of the day for my granddaughter and ultimately making it the BEST part of my day too."
"You can't put a price on having faith formation that is instilled at home and reinforced at school. I think this is reflected in the attitudes and actions of our children. There is a kindness and respect among the kids in how they treat one another and their teachers. This is a priceless commodity in today's society and perhaps this is the biggest blessing of all."
