List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • 克利伯基金是什么?

    克利伯基金 is the “gift every year” that Xaverian counts on from our family—alumni, 父母, 爷爷奶奶, 受托人, friends and faculty—to help underwrite the cost of a Xaverian education. As the budget expands to meet the growing demands of our student body, the Clipper Fund serves as Xaverian’s largest source of unrestricted income allowing us to provide the stellar Catholic education we are known for.
  • Why does Xaverian have the Clipper Fund?

    Like all Catholic schools, tuition alone does not cover the cost of providing a Xaverian education. Not only do we need to close the gap, 但也, need to have funds available to provide for financial aid, professional development for faculty and staff, and capitalize on opportunities to enhance our academic, 精神上的, extra-curricular and athletic programs.
  • Why not simply raise tuition?

    There are tuition increases that help augment growth in faculty salaries and school-wide programs. 但, Xaverian could not raise tuition to cover the full cost without limiting the number of qualified students who could afford to attend. 学费 is also not tax-deductible. A gift to the Clipper Fund is (as allowed by law).
  • Xaverian能削减开支吗?

    The 校董会 works in collaboration with the President to set budgets and closely examines School expenditures. Any cut that would undermine academic, 精神上的, extra-curricular and athletic opportunities would negatively impact a students’ experience at Xaverian.
  • Specifically, what does the Clipper Fund support?

    克利伯基金 supports operations. It helps offset departmental and extracurricular budgets; provides for investments in technology and professional development. It also provides much-needed financial aid for deserving students. 今年, we are introducing our Clipper Family of Funds, and you can designate your Clipper Fund gift as follows:
