Xavier’s Scholar Program is a fantastic way to build an extremely competitive college application. Students develop their passions in an academic field through an individualized course of learning and experience. Scholars work with faculty and community members to explore new ideas, to contribute to a body of research, and to create a network of community members who share expertise in the field. Qualifications, time lengths, and requirements vary for each program. Students may apply to be a Xavier Scholar in the spring of each school year; a student may only participate in one Scholar Program during high school.
