Saint Xavier High School (play /ˈzvjər/ zayv-yər; often abbreviated St. X) is a private, all-male, college-preparatory high school just outside Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. It is located in Finneytown, an unincorporated community in Hamilton County. Founded in 1831 as part of the Athenaeum, St. Xavier is the oldest high school in the Cincinnati area[12] and one of the oldest in the nation, preceding many universities in foundation. The independent, non-diocesan school is operated by the Chicago and Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus as one of four all-male Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. St. Xavier is the largest non-collegiate private school in Ohio[13] and one of the 100 largest non-collegiate schools in the state,[14] with over 1,500 enrolled students.

History

Downtown origins

St. Xavier High School at its inception, with St. Francis Xavier Church at its side.

St. Xavier, once a part of Xavier University, traces its history to the Athenaeum at Seventh Street and Sycamore Street[15] in Downtown Cincinnati. The institute, which included a seminary and lay college, was dedicated by the first bishop of Cincinnati, the Most Rev. Edward D. Fenwick, O.P., on October 17, 1831. Just a week later, the city's first public high school, Woodward College, opened its doors. The Athenaeum stood until 1890, next to The Catholic Telegraph's printing press.[16]

In 1840, at the behest of Bishop Fenwick,[16] the Society of Jesus began operating the Athenaeum's lay college, which it renamed St. Xavier College, after St. Francis Xavier. The Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians) took over the seminary in 1841,[17] and the college was granted a state charter the following year. St. Xavier College originally offered six years of integrated primary, secondary, and post-secondary education, in keeping with the Ratio Studiorum and Jesuite College in Messina, Italy.[18] School closed on Thursdays and Sundays until 1917. Until 1851, admission was originally granted to students from 8–16 years of age.[19]:41, 71 Later, a tuition-free elementary school division opened to complement the college.[12] In 1844, the school's elementary division opened a boarding school campus in Walnut Hills but was forced to close its doors two years later and return downtown.[20] Four years later, "falling enrollment, threat of bankruptcy, and cholera" brought about proposals to close the high school division.[12]

At the close of the 19th century, St. Xavier's athletic teams competed in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Cincinnati.[21]

Expansion and separation

A former entrance sign now hangs in the main stairwell.

In 1910, St. Xavier College transitioned to an American-style eight-year program.[19]:74–75 Some students took typing classes at the St. Xavier Commercial School nearby. On October 1, 1906, another branch campus opened in Walnut Hills. This time, St. Xavier on the Hill served first- and second-year high school students. Tuition was $60 downtown and $80 at the suburban location.[19]:90 Classes were held in Walnut Hills until December 1911.[16]

The next year, the college division moved to its present North Avondale campus. St. Xavier High School formally split with St. Xavier College in 1919, with Fr. Aloysius J. Diersen, S.J., serving as the High School's first president.[20] The College's Schools of Commerce and Sociology continued to offer evening classes at the high school. The College became Xavier University in 1930, to reflect its transition to the American university model and reduce confusion around the several Jesuit institutions in Cincinnati named St. Xavier.[19]:145–146 The two schools became financially independent four years later[20] but continued to share resources. Xavier's School of Education conducted practice teaching at St. Xavier. Also, St. Xavier's senior classes studied at Xavier from 1944 to 1946, to compensate for Xavier's loss of cadets from the Army Air Corps 30th College Training Detachment during World War II.[19]:180

St. Xavier began its move from the original location in downtown Cincinnati in April 1955 when its president, Fr. John J. Benson, S.J., purchased a 62-acre (0.25 km2)[22] plot in Finneytown. In September 1960, St. Xavier High School moved into its newly built facilities in unincorporated Springfield Township, designed by local architect Albert Walters.[23] At the time, the over $4 million facilities were nicknamed the "Finneytown Hilton". The original high school building was later torn down and is now the site of a parking lot.[12] In 1965, St. Xavier produced its first three African-American graduates, Phil Cox,[24][25] Michael Walker,[26] and Peter D. Samples.[27] The same school year, Myron Kilgore was hired as the school's first African-American faculty member.[28]

Since its move away from downtown, St. Xavier has expanded its facilities dramatically. In 1969, the school added a natatorium, featuring an $500,000 Olympic-size swimming pool.[12][29] St. Xavier's worship space was replaced by Xavier Hall, a multipurpose facility, in 1986. In 1995, Benson Gym was renamed for basketball coach Dick Berning.[30] In 1998, a $12.6 million expansion project moved science classes from the basement into a new, three-story wing and added the Holy Companions Chapel and a dedicated intramural gym.[31] During the 2003–04 school year, St. Xavier renovated the football stadium around Ballaban Field, which was built in the late 1960s.[20] Along with the stadium, the school opened a 500-seat[32] theater space, as well as a black box theater, art studios, and renovated music rooms. A new track field replaced the track that once surrounded Ballaban Field. St. Xavier also converted the former Girls' Town of America[33] location across the street into its "South Campus", which includes new baseball and soccer fields.[34]

Academics

As of 2009, St. Xavier has 1,550 enrolled students, the most of any Catholic high school in an area with the nation's second-highest private school attendance rate.[42][43] For the 2011–12 school year, tuition will be US$11,395.00,[11] which St. Xavier has claimed to be $2,737 less than the cost of educating a student at the school.[44] During the 2010–11 school year, about 30% of students received an average of $5,345 in financial aid.[11] The faculty consists of 120 full-time teachers, including six Jesuit priests and a sister from the Congregation of Divine Providence.[7][45] English teacher John Hussong is the longest-standing faculty member at the school.[46]

Admissions

Students apply to St. Xavier High School by taking an entrance test and submitting an elementary school transcript, teacher recommendations, and an enrollment application. Other factors, such as legacy, are also taken into account. St. Xavier uses the High School Placement Test (HSPT) in its admissions process.[47] Approximately half of applicants are admitted as freshman each year.[2] About a quarter of these students are admitted due to alumni or current students in their families (see Legacy preferences).[48] The 418 students of the Class of 2015 include graduates of 58 private elementary schools and 29 public school districts from throughout Greater Cincinnati, Southeastern Indiana, and Northern Kentucky, as well as several homeschoolers and transplants from other states.[49] Of the preceding class, 84% are Roman Catholic, while 14% are of other Christian denominations, 1% are Hindu, and 1% are Muslim. Eleven percent of the entire student body are racial minorities.[50]

In addition to students from the Greater Cincinnati area, St. Xavier admits students from overseas through various foreign exchange programs, such as American Field Service. Over the years, foreign exchange students have come from many countries, including Brazil, Germany, Montenegro, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, and Vietnam.[51][52] In particular, partner school Col·legi Casp–Sagrat Cor de Jesús in Barcelona has sent students to St. Xavier for over a decade.[53] St. Xavier students may receive credit for work completed at the school's other partners, Canisius-Kolleg Berlin and Xavier University.[54]

Curriculum and scheduling

All students at St. Xavier are part of the school's college preparatory program, requiring 23.0 credit units for graduation. St. Xavier offers a wide variety of courses as part of the program, which is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Jesuit Secondary Education Association (of which the school is a member), and Ohio Department of Education.[2] The school's Foreign Language Department, for example, offers Advanced Placement–level instruction in French, German, Latin, and Spanish, as well as classes in Chinese,[55] Portuguese, Russian, and Classical Greek. Other high-level courses include Advanced 2D Design Portfolio and Multivariable Calculus, as well as AP courses in Computer Science, English Literature and Composition, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, and European History.[2] In all, the school offers 24 Advanced Placement courses in seven subject areas.[7] As a Roman Catholic school, St. Xavier requires students to study various aspects of religion and theology each year. Students are also required to take physical education, public speaking (Oral Communications), and computer usage (Information Processing) classes, as part of an emphasis on cura personalis ("well-rounded individuals").

The school year is divided into two semesters for grading and course scheduling purposes, but exams are administered quarterly (see Academic term).[54] St. Xavier meets on a traditional, nine-period schedule, in which students attend each class daily, ordinarily from 8:00 am to 3:05 pm. However, the order in which the classes meet vary from day to day, so that every student's science class may extend into one of the lunch periods, "Flex Times", one day each week. Additionally, two days dubbed "X and Y days" are often set aside for block scheduling, to allow for classroom material that would not otherwise fit into a normal-length class period.[56] In 2011, St. Xavier introduced a ten-day, eight-period rolling schedule developed by Independent School Management.[57] The school is also trialling an ISM proposal to eliminate bells between classes.[58]

During any free periods a student may have, St. Xavier's "open campus" policy permits the student to use various school facilities, including study hall or outdoor areas.[59] Moreover, seniors are afforded "off-campus privilege", for instance allowing them to eat lunch at nearby restaurants, rather than at the school cafeteria.

Recognition and graduation

Each year, a number of St. Xavier students receive honors from standardized testing programs. From 1970 to 2008, 962 students were named semifinalists or finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program.[2][60] In 2006, 137 students received Scholar Awards for their high scores on Advanced Placement tests; of them, three were named National AP Scholars, the highest distinction awarded.[61] In addition, 16 were named finalists[62] and 24 named Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program.[63] In 2007, five won the National Merit program's highest distinction.[64] The U.S. Department of Education recognized the school itself as a Blue Ribbon School for the 1983–84 year.[65]

Virtually all of the school's students graduate and enter a post-secondary institution after graduation.[2] The University of Cincinnati, Ohio State University, and Miami University received the most students from the Class of 2011.[66] According to BusinessWeek, nearly a third of the Class of 2004 pursued a major in business.[67] In 2007, St. Xavier published a directory of over 16,000 living alumni, listing "511 living graduates as medical doctors or dentists, 624 as attorneys, and 611 as engineers".[7]

School traditions

The largest of the 50 all-male high schools run by the Society of Jesus in the United States,[7] St. Xavier shares many Jesuit traditions with other secondary institutions run by the order. For example, graduating students are expected to have acquired the five characteristics defined in the "Graduate at Graduation" profile: Open to Growth, Intellectually Competent, Religious, Loving, and Committed to Justice.[68] Many Jesuit high schools have "Grad at Grad" expectations, although the characteristics and their descriptions vary from school to school.

The Xavier University seal, like the St. Xavier seal, bears the schools' coat of arms, which consists of five vertical stripes, an arm holding a crucifix, and three seashells.
The seals of St. Xavier and Xavier University (shown here) both bear the motto Vidit Mirabilia Magna.

St. Xavier students are also taught the phrase Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, the motto of the Society of Jesus, and are often instructed to write the initialism "AMDG" at the top of submitted papers and tests, to remind them that even their schoolwork is "For the Greater Glory of God". The seals of both St. Xavier and Xavier University bear the motto Vidit Mirabilia Magna (Latin for "He has seen great wonders"), taken from a passage of the Roman Breviary applied to St. Francis Xavier.[69][70] As in other Jesuit secondary schools, detention is invariably called "JUG", which is commonly said to mean "Justice Under God".[12]

The school holds school-wide Masses on Holy Days of Obligation and other important events, as well as optional daily Mass in Holy Companions Chapel at the center of campus. Two days a year, classes are canceled, though students are still required to stay in school all day. In place of the daily orders, they attend morning Mass and are then encouraged to spend the day at school as they see fit. The autumn occasion, Spirit Day, is celebrated on the Mass of the Holy Spirit, a feast day that other Jesuit institutions also observe. During the spring occasion, MusicFest, students hold a grill-out on the school parking lot while student bands perform on a nearby stage. MusicFest began in 1986 to cap off Music Appreciation Week.[71][72] An additional day each fall, classes are preempted for the Walk For X, a 10-kilometer (6.2 mi) walkathon through Finneytown neighborhoods that funds a financial aid program.[73]

Ignatian retreats are offered frequently at St. Xavier. Besides class-wide programs held at the Jesuit Spiritual Center in Milford, optional retreats include Knightwatch for sophomores and Kairos,[74] which was introduced in February 1985 for seniors.[75]

Alma mater

The alma maters of St. Xavier and another Jesuit high school, St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, are identical except for the last two lines, which refer to the school name and colors.[15][76] The alma mater was composed in 1937 by the St. Ignatius band director, Jack Hearns Sr. In 1958, the Cleveland school gave St. Xavier permission to adapt the song.[77] This adaptation is sung after St. Xavier school assemblies, athletic events, and graduation:

Our famed alma mater graces
Every shrine within our hearts
With her unforgotten faces
And the faith that she imparts.
Years in passing cannot sever
Ties of old days from the new.
We are Xavier men forever
As we hail the white and blue.

Campus

The front entrance to St. Xavier was renovated in 1998.

At 110 acres (0.4 km2),[7] St. Xavier's campus is approximately the size of the Vatican City. In addition to hundreds of classrooms and the sports venues described below, the school grounds has room for a wooded walking trail, a mock courtroom, and a school history exhibit. The Fred Middendorf, S.J., Nature Trail runs about a third of a mile behind the athletic fields.[78][79] Indoors, the Mock Trial team makes use of a specially built classroom that imitates the layout of a courtroom.[80] Along the school's main hallways, recent student artwork hangs beside the Living Walls project, a graphical timeline accompanying 90 years of class photos.[81]

St. Xavier maintains 11 computer labs with over 330 computers equipped with Microsoft Windows and Zip drives.[7] By 2001, St. Xavier had become one of the first Catholic schools in Cincinnati to use SMART Boards in classrooms, Edline for parent-student-teacher communication, and Gaggle.net for student-to-student e-mail. In 2005, the school employed SMART Board or SMART Cart systems in 25 classrooms.[82] In 2010, Gaggle service was replaced by Microsoft Live@edu accounts for students and faculty members.[83] The school's library, named for alumnus and Ohio state representative John D. "Jay" Carroll III,[84] contains 23,000 volumes.[85]

The school's Finneytown campus features athletic facilities comparable to most colleges, highlighted by a new football stadium and a modernized Charles H. Keating Sr. Natatorium. The natatorium, which St. Xavier shares with the Cincinnati Marlins, houses an Olympic-size swimming pool and seats 626. It hosted the Amateur Athletic Union national swimming championships in 1970 and 1976.[29] The football stadium, named after the school, was built during the 2003–04 school year around Ballaban Field.[20] St. Xavier's soccer field was home to the now-defunct Cincinnati Cheetahs professional soccer team during their 1994 season.[86]

Open End stands outside Berning Gymnasium.

St. Xavier's campus features a number of prominent pieces of artwork. At the entrance stands a statue of the school's namesake[87] that once stood atop the entry to the old school building downtown.[88] There is also a smaller statue of St. Xavier in the main stairwell.[12] The sculpture Open End, a 1983 work by Australian sculptor Clement Meadmore, stood outside the Cincinnati Commerce Center at Sixth and Vine Streets downtown until Prudential Insurance Company donated it to St. Xavier in 1999.[89] The 11-foot-high (3.4 m), 5-short-ton (4.5 t) curved metal beam is now located at the Math Wing entrance outside Berning Gymnasium.[90] Inside, the Fine Art Gallery includes a landscape painting by Lewis Henry Meakin.[91]

As of 2009, St. Xavier contracts with Aramark for food services. In addition to servicing the school cafeteria, which has been renamed the "U.B.U. Lounge", Aramark operates the Snack Xpress shop, Bomber Deli, and cafeteria annex. Previously, the school contracted with local company GTC Foodservice for 16 years.[92] The Bait Shop concession stand in Keating Natatorium is operated separately by the Cincinnati Marlins.[93]

Extracurricular activities

St. Xavier places an emphasis on "co-curricular" activities as a complement to academics. The most visible of these activities are supported by the school's athletic, arts, and community service departments. In addition, students have formed 85 school-sanctioned clubs with the sponsorship of faculty members.[7]

Visible are the new South Campus (lower left), the unaffiliated Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science (center left), St. Xavier Stadium (upper center), and the school track field (upper right).

Perhaps as well regarded as its academics, St. Xavier's large athletic program was ranked 13th in the nation in 2008 by Sports Illustrated.[94] The school offers 14 Division I athletic programs: baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, football, golf, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling.[7] The teams are members of the Greater Catholic League (GCL). As one of four all-male institutions that participate in the GCL's South Division, St. Xavier competes with nearby Elder, La Salle, and Moeller high schools in athletic events that are often broadcast on Waycross Community Media. During the 2010 football season, games were broadcast on Fox Sports Radio affiliate WSAI.[95]

St. Xavier's sports teams were originally nicknamed the "Conquistadors", or "Conquerors". Eventually, the teams came to be known as the Bombers.[96] Competing explanations of the name change credit American success in World War II, "bombs" thrown by George Ratterman to Charley Wolf in football games,[96] and a corruption of the nickname given to Jesuit missionaries in World War II, the "Balmers".[97] Though there is further disagreement over exactly when the move took place, alumni accounts place it sometime in the 1930s or 1940s.[98] The "Bomber" is not represented on the field in costumed form. Instead, the "Blue Monster" – a shaggy, Muppet-like mascot that takes its name from the student cheering section – appears at games wearing a Bomber football jersey.[99][100]

St. Xavier has won a state championship in many of the sports in which it fields a team. The most decorated among these teams is the school's prestigious swimming and diving program, which has garnered considerable national respect. Known as the "Aquabombers", the team has won district, sectional and city-wide titles in every year since 1970, capturing 31 Ohio state championships during this span. In 2008, St. Charles Preparatory School of Columbus broke the Aquabombers' nine-year state title streak.[101] The team has earned the distinction of Swimming World Magazine national high school swimming champions in 1973, 1992, 2001, and 2007.[102] Headed by Coach Jim Brower, the Aquabombers produced Swimming World Magazine high school swimmers of the year Joe Hudepohl in 1992 and Jayme Cramer in 2001. Hudepohl was also a member of the United States Olympic Swim Team in 1992 and 1996 and still holds several school, state and national records in swimming.

In addition to the swimming and diving program, the Bombers are also well-known for their football team. In 1999, the St. Xavier football team appeared on Team Cheerios cereal boxes, alongside St. Ignatius High School, in recognition of the schools' football and community service programs, as well as their records in the National Merit Scholarship Program.[103] On December 3, 2005, under Coach Steve Specht, the Bombers defeated Massillon Washington High School to earn the 2005 state football title, the first in team history, after having finished as state runners-up in 1992, 1998 and 2001. The Bombers ended their season with a perfect record: undefeated in the regular season and the playoffs. For this occasion, the City of Cincinnati declared December 14, 2005 "St. Xavier High School Day".[104] In 2007, the Bombers were rated first or second high school football team nationally in a number of pre-season rankings;[105] the same year, St. Xavier defeated DeMatha Catholic High School in a game nationally televised on ESPN.[106] St. Xavier went on to win their second state championship that year in a 27–0 victory against Mentor High School,[107] as well as the National Prep Poll's mythical national championship. The football program's national exposure continued with losses against Highlands High School on CSTV in 2009[29] and against Our Lady of Good Counsel High School the next year on ESPN.[108]

St. Xavier won the state basketball championship in 2000 and finished as runners-up in the 2005[109] and 2007[110] state basketball tournament. The Cross Country team has also enjoyed a great deal of success, winning OHSAA Championships in 1998, 2000, and 2003, as well as runner-up finishes in 1999 and 2009. The team has been one of the most consistent teams in Ohio, having qualified to the OHSAA State Championship Race 28 of the past 29 years since 1987.

State titles

As of February 2011, the Bombers have won 43 boys team Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) state titles, the most boys titles in Ohio. Counting boys and girls team titles, St. Xavier is tied with Upper Arlington High School for the number of OHSAA State Championships won.

St. Xavier's OHSAA-sponsored titles are:

Additionally, St. Xavier students have won state titles for singles or doubles Division I tennis in 1946, 1947, 2002, 2005,[113] and 2006.[121]

St. Xavier's non-OHSAA state titles include:

Fight song

We're on our way to victory
And when the Bombers get that ball,
They'll rush right through the other team
And hit 'em hard until they fall.
(Fight! Fight! Fight!)
We're on our way to win the game,
And then we'll let our banners fly;
For we are the unexcelled
Bombers of Xavier High![129][130]

The arts

St. Xavier's arts program is centered around three disciplines: performing arts (drama), visual arts, and musical arts. The drama and music disciplines are supplemented by a number of extracurricular programs.

Theatre Xavier

St. Xavier High School's drama group, Theatre Xavier (TX), has won the Best Play and Best Musical awards from the Cappies of Greater Cincinnati for many of its productions.[131] The school's 500-seat[32] theater space, the Walter C. Deye, S.J., Performance Center[132] (formerly the St. Xavier Performance Center), rivals those of many colleges in size. It opened in 2004 along with the fine arts wing.[12] Past and upcoming productions include:

Musical groups

St. Xavier sponsors a variety of musical programs, ranging from the marching band to a liturgical music group. The Marching Bombers perform at varsity football games.[155] The drumline's two trademark cadences are "Stroker Style", played while marching into the stadium, and "Jungle Groove", played while exiting. St. Xavier's first off-season drumline started between the 2008 and 2009 seasons. The off-season line composed two new cadences, titled "Apple 10" and "Sophomore Cadence", that debuted during the 2009 season.[citation needed] A subset of the marching band also performs at varsity basketball games as the Pep Band.[155]

Off the field, many St. Xavier students participate in musical groups that primarily perform at school concerts and national competitions. The men's choruses are Xmen, Something Blue, Rhythm and Blue, Bomber Chorus, and Shades of Blue. Named for the superheroes of the fictional Xavier Institute, the Xmen form the largest extracurricular at St. Xavier. However, with the arrival of fall athletes in the spring, the Xmen split into two groups: the upperclassman Shades of Blue and underclassman Bomber Chorus.[156] Unlike the Xmen, Something Blue and Rhythm and Blue require auditions; they sing acappella and chamber pieces, respectively.[156]

The choir groups are complemented by a few instrumental ensembles. The jazz ensemble, known as Out of the Blue, is considered the St. Xavier select band.[157] The wind ensemble consists of over 100 members.[155] The string ensemble consists of two groups: Chamber Blues, made of bowed instruments, and a larger group called Men in Black that includes guitars.[158]

In 1973, the jazz ensemble, then known as the "stage band", won "Best in the United States" in a national competition, and at least three of its seniors went on to enjoy successful music careers.[citation needed] More recently, several of St. Xavier's music groups competed in the 2005 Festival Disney competition at Walt Disney World. The Xmen received "Best in Show" and "Best Chorus" with 96.7 of 100 points (a superior rating), while Something Blue scored 93 points (superior).[159] In 2007, the Xmen ranked first in a Heritage Festival in San Diego.[160]

Community service

Following the call of Jesuit Superior-General Pedro Arrupe in 1973 to "form men for others", St. Xavier formed a Community Service department that continues to coordinate service programs today. These programs include the Advent Canned Food Drive (since 1926),[161][162] a housing rehabilitation program (since 1992),[163] Big Buddies, Junior Big Brothers, and a number of summer mission trips to disadvantaged areas both around the United States and internationally. Destinations have included:

St. Xavier runs drop-in "tutoring centers", where students can receive mathematics and writing help from upperclassman, as well as a separate peer tutoring program that pairs students up for one-on-one assistance. The various programs, though optional, are generally popular among students. In 2006, for example, 175 students signed up for the Big Brothers program.[175] According to the school, three-quarters of the student body voluntarily participate in community service programs.[7]

St. Xavier's emphasis on service is evident in the school's motto, "Men for Others". Along with other Jesuit institutions,[176] the school has expanded its motto to "Men for and with Others" in recent years. The addition of these two words has met with criticism and ridicule from the student body, which sees it as a corruption of the original, more memorable version.

Student publications

The X-ray of 1942

An active student-run newspaper, the Blueprint, is published and distributed to students and teachers monthly.[177] It is produced entirely outside the classroom, which is uncommon for high school newspapers. Many high schools offer journalism as a class, but St. Xavier has specifically chosen not to offer journalism as an English course for its students. Until 2007, the Blueprint was a member of the National Scholastic Press Association.[178] It replaced the Xavier Prep, which was published until at least the 1940s.[98] After a brief online stint in 1996,[179] the Blueprint returned to the Internet in 2010 with a standalone website and Twitter account.[180]

The school's other two student publications are X-Ray, the annual yearbook, and Xpressions, a student literary magazine founded in 1964.[177]

Other clubs

  • Despite being unaffiliated with St. Xavier, several athletic organizations, such as the Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club[181] and Northbend Rugby Club,[182] count many of its students among their ranks. In addition, the Cincinnati Marlins are headquartered at Keating Natatorium,[20] and the North Bend Ski Club[181] offers discounted seasonal passes to Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg, Indiana through the club program.
  • The St. Xavier Quiz Team, a member of the Greater Cincinnati Academic League (GCAL), has participated in many statewide tournaments under the direction of John F. Hussong, who has taught English at St. Xavier since 1964, and Ron Weisbrod, a history teacher at the school. The team managed its first state championship in 1997, as well as two runner-up finishes in the early 1990s.
  • Under the direction of Lindy Michael, the Math Club grew to 120 regularly participating students, making it "the second-most populated extracurricular after football."[183]
  • The St. Xavier Chess Team, led by Dr. Brad Homoelle, won the Greater Cincinnati Scholastic Chess League (GCSCL) championship during the 2005–2006 season.
  • FCC-licensed students with the Radio Club operate amateur radio equipment and participated in the Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiment (SAREX).[184] First licensed around 1951,[185][186] the club operates under the call sign W8GYH.[187] In 2005, four recent alumni of the Radio Club – Andy Meng, Ben Corrado, Justin Rigling, and Brandon Schamer – maintained a record, 11-Mbit/s wireless connection that stretched the 124.9 miles (201.0 km) from Potosi Mountain near Las Vegas, Nevada, to Utah Hill near Santa Clara, Utah, for three hours, as part of the DEF CON Wi-Fi Shootout.[188][189][190]
  • The school Latin Club is a local chapter of both the Ohio Junior Classical League (OJCL)[191] and National Junior Classical League (NJCL).[192]

Notable alumni

St. Xavier collectively refers to its graduates as the "Long Blue Line",[193] after the school colors and the blue attire worn at graduation. The school's living graduates number some 16,000, as of 2008.[194] Many St. Xavier alumni are well-known figures in the Cincinnati area, and many others have gained recognition nationally and abroad as well. The following list includes those who completed the high school program at St. Xavier College before 1919:

Arts and literature
Athletics
