We moved to Louisville so our son could attend St.X. The best decision ever! If you are looking for excellence in education, as well as character development, you won't be disappointed! Outstanding faculty, counselors and administration who always go the extra mile for all the boys.

Incredible education made way for an incredible life adventure. Thanks St. X. I am constantly reminded of the excellence of my education by those I encounter. I truly owe it to St. X.

I love St. Xavier High School because it promotes excellence nor only in lwarning and athletics, but also and primarily in character building, moral rectitude, and social and civic graces.

I am proud to be a St. X alumni 08. I am currently a freshman at the University of Alabama and I find it alot easier than X. I am on the deans list and I was chosen to attend Oxford through an Alabama program next year. Saint Xavier not only made me the best man I can be but it also prepared me for any level of academics that awaits my future. Go St. X. Beat Trinity.

Typical private school. If you are not wealthy or athletic, you are considered average and, thus, not useful to the school in their plans, regardless of how hard you work for it.

Phenomenal school! My son attended catholic school through 8th grade. He tried public high school through half of his sophomore year. Transferred to st. X and has excelled since. This school is absolutely the best catholic high school in louisville. From day one they made sure my son became acclimated to the school and helped him do his best. The ap checked on my son and supported him. This year, prior to school beginning, my son's counselor called to discuss the upcoming year and how best for my son to excel. Very involved from all aspects. They will do everything they can for your son to be his best. Yes, it is expensive, but it is worth every cent. My son is excelling and he strives everyday to do his best! st. X is the best in louisville.

Great school. They have the complete package. My only regret is that I could not attend as I grew up in another state.

As with any school you get out what you put in. The different is how much help or direction you receive for the effort you put in. At St. X the gains are high the support runs deep. If a boy wants to become a good Man this is the place to be. The school is not the best in everything but it is the best place for becoming the best you can be.

Typical private high school; more involved with the money than the education; lost the edge they were founded on years ago

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
