Xaverian Brothers High School joins other Catholic programs in adding middle grades
Xaverian Brothers High School isn’t what it used to be. For the first time in more than 50 years, the all-male Catholic prep school has expanded to include a new middle-grades program, adding young adolescents to the mix on its Westwood campus.
The school accepted its first seventh-grade class this year, under a plan to phase in the seventh- and eighth-grade program over two years.
In reaching down to the middle grades, Xaverian Brothers is embracing a model that is becoming more common among Catholic independent high schools. By this time next year, St. John’s Preparatory School in Danvers will introduce a sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade program. St. Mary’s High School, in Lynn, added a sixth grade to its program three years ago.
