Xavier's mission calls us to enroll intelligent, motivated young men of diverse backgrounds and means.

For 176 years, students have traveled from the farthest reaches of New York City and its surrounding suburbs to be transformed by a Jesuit education on 16th Street, and we are delighted that you are considering such an opportunity now.

For more information about our application process, please email or call (212) 924-7900, ext. 1442.

If you are interested in applying late for a ninth-grade seat for fall 2023, please complete our Inquiry Form, and we will send you further information about our application process for late applicants.
