PLEASE NOTE:

  Advanced Placement courses are ordinarily available only to juniors and seniors. Admission to these courses is competitive and is based upon past performance/testing and - in all cases – approval by the instructor. Space is restricted for these courses.  Due to St. Xavier schedule requirements, most juniors can accommodate only AP Biology and/or AP U.S. History in their schedule. Due to the rigor and pace of the curriculum, more academically successful seniors are advised to take only as many AP courses for which they are approved and can be successful.  St. Xavier students must take at least six courses (seven-period day) each semester, unless concurrently enrolled in two or more AP subjects. Due to course sequencing, many underclassmen must take a seventh course each semester.
