A Message From the President

Theodore James Ryken’s original calling and mission was to form a band of Brothers who would mutually and spiritually edify one another, while carrying the shared responsibility of educating the young. These gentlemen of humble beginnings are called the Xaverian Brothers. Their Brotherhood remains alive and well today as they serve out a higher purpose in communities around the world.

Over time, Ryken’s vision and the virtues he established have been adopted by a growing body of faculty, staff, and students. They understand and seek to exemplify the foundational values of the Xaverian charism: humility, simplicity, compassion, trust, and zeal.

The members of our faculty are brothers and sisters in Christ, sharing The Mount’s mission to shape young students into the men God intends them to be.

George E. Andrews Jr.
President
