  • The $75 ticket admits only the student and his date.
  • The dress code is formal attire.
  • A student’s date must be under 21 years of age.
  • Saint Xavier sponsors only the dance and does not sponsor activities either before or after the dance.
  • Saint Xavier does not accept the drinking of alcohol at cocktail parties or at dinner prior to the dance. Saint Xavier does not condone the rental of hotel rooms for parties before or after the prom.
  • A Passive Alcohol Sensor will be used when a student or his date is suspected of being in possession of or under the influence of alcohol. Parents will be notified to pick up their son and his date if either is under the influence of alcohol. Refer to the Parent/Student Handbook for violations of the Drug/Alcohol policy.

EXAMS

Senior Exams May 10, 13, 15, and 16
  • Regular school dress is required on all exam days.
  • Seniors are expected to sit for exams at the scheduled time unless excused by a written doctor’s note.
  • If a senior has both exams on an exam day, he must remain for the full testing period for both the first and second exams each day. He cannot go to his car or leave campus between exams.
  • Seniors with two exams at the same time should complete an Exam Conflict Form in Student Services by Wednesday, May 8.

Exemption Policy From the Parent/Student Handbook: Seniors with an overall “A” average for both quarters of the applicable semester may be exempt if that is the policy of the individual teacher. A teacher may choose to have all students take an exam regardless of quarter grades unless it is an AP course. If a senior completes the AP exam with conscientious effort and has an overall “B” average for the third and fourth quarters and a “B” average in the course, he is exempt from the final exam in that course. If a senior does not complete the AP exam with conscientious effort, or does not take the AP exam at all, and has an overall “A” average for the third and fourth quarters and a “B” average in the course, he is exempt from the final exam in that course. He may, however, choose to take the final to improve his average in the course.

AP Exams May 6 - 17

Alcohol and Drug Policy: The St. X Community hopes that seniors can enjoy the closing events of their high school career without the use of alcohol or any other drug. Any student found in possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia or under the influence at any closing event, including graduation practice, will jeopardize his opportunity to participate in graduation activities.

Grooming and Dress Code: Regular grooming codes are in effect for all end-of-the-year events.

Library Books: Seniors must turn in any library books or pay for lost books before receiving their cap and gown at senior celebration. Contact Mrs. Metcalfe with any questions.

Tuition: Tuition and fees, including any outstanding cafeteria charges, must be paid before picking up the cap and gown.

Failures: If a senior fails one course needed for graduation, he will be notified by phone, and he will be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. If a senior fails two courses required for graduation, he will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. Once all required course work is completed, he will receive his diploma. In all cases, if a senior fails a required course needed to qualify for a diploma, he must work with the Assistant Principal on a plan to make up the required course work.

Final Transcripts: Counselors will collect requests for final transcripts. A copy of final grades or graduation verification will not be sent unless a Final Transcript Request Form is completed and signed. If a senior is still uncertain where he plans to attend college by the time the school year is completed, it remains his responsibility to complete the Final Transcript Request Form to request where the final transcript should be sent.
