St. Francis Xavier Scholars

Established in 2008, the St. Francis Xavier Scholars Program recognizes and develops academic excellence, promotes intellectual exploration, provides enrichment and inspires the cultivation of academic leadership at Malden Catholic. Named in honor of the patron saint of the Xaverian Brothers who is known for his zeal, the St. Francis Xavier Scholars Program intends to feature and strengthen a Catholic values-based pursuit of knowledge for scholar members.

THE SCHOLARS PROGRAM INCLUDES:
  • Four-day MC Summer Institute
  • Heightened College Counseling
  • Lecture Opportunities (colleges or in-house)
  • Project Development (MC Christian Service; senior thesis, etc.)
  • Quarterly school-year seminars/lectures/field trips
  • Recognition (transcript notation, banquet, blessing ceremony) 
HOW ARE SFX SCHOLARS SELECTED?

In recognition of their talents, incoming first-year students with entrance test scores and academic profiles in the top percentile of the applying class will be invited to be members of the St. Francis Xavier Scholars Program. Students who performed well in 9th grade may also apply for participation in the program during their sophomore year at Malden Catholic if they have achieved a cumulative average above an 88%, taken at least 3 honors courses in their first year, are currently enrolled in at least 4 honors courses and are students in good standing.
