Xavier Expeditions began in 2010 with one course on a single expedition. In 2018, we had seven expeditions and 13 course options.

Our growth is primarily the result of student interest, word-of-mouth, and met expectations.

Consult the details below to see where we’ve been and how we’ve grown in terms of expeditions/ courses offered as well as number of students attending.
