Xavier High School is a Jesuit coeducational high school located on the island of Weno in Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia. It was established in 1952. It was the first high school in the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Bishop Thomas Feeney, S.J., D.D. from the New York Province of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) originally envisioned a minor seminary to train local clergy. Soon after, Xavier Seminary became the first college preparatory school in the Western Pacific. Today, Xavier High School continues to provide a rigorous college preparatory education as a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition. With an international staff of Jesuits, Jesuit Volunteers, alumni, and local people, Xavier has an enrollment of about 150 students, serving the islands nations of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Students come from the different island nations of Micronesia, and are selected by passing a written test and written recommendation. Alumni have gone on to lead influential roles in Micronesia. This has earned Xavier the distinction of "the Harvard of Micronesia".[citation needed]
