Student Life

Cultural Day is a way for the various island nations to showcase their traditional cultures.

Xavier continues to value leadership development as a constitutive element of our educational goal.  Students are challenged and given the opportunity to explore their development as competent, conscientious, and compassionate leaders for their peers as well as the broader island community.

Freshmen and Senior Entertainments

The freshmen entertainment, which is done in the beginning of the year, is done as a way to welcome the freshmen and to make them feel at home. It is usually done with joyous skits, songs, and hilarious beauty contests. The senior entertainment, which is done before the seniors graduate, is a chance for the students to say goodbye to the seniors with skits, songs, and speeches which are usually sad, but sometimes even funny..

STUDENT LEADERSHIP

Xavier High School builds leadership and service through student participation in the management and cleanliness of certain areas on campus. Known as Prefects, these student leaders are selected by their peers and approved by the administration to lead certain initiatives on campus related to the following areas:

Student body Organization

The student body organizations are composed of the governing body-the Student Senate headed by the SBA officers; the managers and their prefects: the varsity teams for basketball and volleyball, the intramural softball league, the soccer team, and other athletic groups; the clubs like drama; and other organization in charge of an aspect of Xavier life, like the galley members. These organizations are an important part of Xavier; they district the school as a brilliant center of learning and life.

Senate Managers

The student senate is composed of the officers of the different divisions that exist within the Student Body, Such as the officers of the Student Body Association, gilrs’ Representatives, class officers, and island  district representatives. These are the leaders if the many facets of the Student Body that cooperate within the Student Senate to give the students an active role in the school’s administration.

Managers

The Managers are the head student caretakers of the school. Each manager is given a student-corresponding responsibility of a part of the Xavier High School community, such as the management of the Dormitories, Dining Hall, Library, Student Center, Computer Room, Sports Room, Music Cabinet, pig

Districts

The students of Xavier High School come from different island nations and states, or “districts”. Each student belong to one or more of these unique districts, namely: Marshall islands District, the Palau District, Chuuk State District, Kosrae State District, Pohnpei State District, and Yap State District. The districts are the homes away from home for the students, where students can share their common heritage and culture and time-out from the bustling Xavier traditions. Each district is singularly distinctive in its right, but the different districts have something in common: they’re Micronesian, and they’re part of the bigger Xavier Family District!

Task Master
The Task Master is a senior who is elected by the students to supervise all student work. He possesses an incredible sense of responsibility, reliability, bravery, and resilience.

Dining Hall Prefects
The school cafeteria is nothing without the dining hall prefects. They dining hall prefects are a group of sophomores, supervised by a junior, who are in charge of making sure tha all the students eat. The also make sure that the water coolers are always filled with drinking water. They enforce the dining hall rules such as making sure the dining hall is clean at all times and at a reasonable volume during meals. The Head Dining Hall Prefect makes sure all his prefects do their job. Students love them especially when mackerel is served. - by Benedict Tipeno

Shower House Prefects
A group of Xavier boys who are assigned to take care of the boys’ showerhouse. They work together, as brothers, to help their brothers…ensuring that there is adequate water in the tanks for shower. They also enforce all the showerhouse rules. Without this group of boys, things would go very badly for the other boys…sometimes very bad. – by Jesse M’ong

Study Hall Prefects
As study hall prefects, we ensure that the study hall is a comfortable and quiet place for the students to study. This role requires many skills: bravery, initiative, courage, concern, vigilance, and firmness. These men and women are known as the toughest of all prefects. Any order of command should be obeyed or else…SATURDAY WORK! We overcome the stubborness of the students, maintain the neatness of the studyhall, carry out the studyhall rules well, and try to make the study time fair for all. We strive for the best and accomplish perfection through the good manners and cooperation of the Xavier students. -by Ally Anson

Labor Managers
This group of men and a woman work together to keep the campus clean. They are the most hard working people and always ready to take on more responsibilities.
- by Hiroyuki Mori

Bell Ringers
In order for Xavier High School to move, it needs this group of essential students called the “bell ringers.” Bell ringers are picked only from the Freshmen class and are mostly boys. Bell ringers are the most important people on the Xavier campus, although lower than Papa Jim Croghan. Their job is to ring the bell in the morning for rise time, morning study, classes, breaks, work, showertime, girls to leave, night study, bedtime…basically everything. We live and die by the bell. -Victorious Falan

Dorm Prefects
The dorm is a 24-hour quiet zone and a place where food or drinks are not allowed for it is a place to rest. The prefects have tried their best enforcing the rules for the dorm. Even though they are small, the don’t let any of the boys break the rules. They help the boys go to sleep early, peacefully, and comfortably; they make sure the boys get enough sleep. The prefects also keep our dorm looking like a place to live when boys tend to make the dorm a pigs’ pen. -by Douglas B.
