Phoenix’s Only Girls’ Catholic School Celebrates 75 Years
Earlier this year, Xavier College Preparatory, the first and only all-women’s Catholic high school in Phoenix, celebrated its 75-year anniversary.
Xavier was founded in 1943 and welcomed its inaugural class of eleven students. Today, the school has a student body of approximately 1,200 young women and has a network of nearly 10,000 graduates across the world. It also boasts a staff of more than 200.
To celebrate, the school hosted a variety of “Diamond Jubilee” tributes and events including a Traditions Day that celebrated current students and alumni alike. Xavier also recently established multiple Jubilee Scholarships for incoming ninth graders.
Xavier has been recognized three times as an exemplary National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education and 100 percent of its graduates attend post-secondary colleges and universities.
