Xavier College Preparatory’s student newspaper captured first place honors in the “Private/Parochial School” category of the American Scholastic Press Association’s national scholastic newspaper awards.

Run by a team of nine student editors and 50-student staff members, the newspaper debuted during Xavier’s first school year more than 70 years ago.  Currently called the “Xpress,” it has been published continuously since 1943.
