Xavier's School for the Gifted (formerly Gifted Youngsters) is a school based in Westchester County, New York which focuses on taking in and providing a safe learning environment and support for struggling mutant teenagers.

Goals & Interests[]

Founded in the 1980s by Charles Francis Xavier, Xavier's ultimate goal is peaceful co-existance between mutants and non-mutants. To these ends, they take in young mutants, providing them with an education while also training them in the use and control of their mutant abilities.


Despite being a haven and teaching mutational control, Xavier's is foremost a school. Charles Xavier is founder and Headmaster Emeritus, while Dr. Jean Grey is Headmaster in title and function.

Xavier's boasts a full curriculum for junior and high school subjects that ranges from the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic to more esoteric subjects such as art history and zoology. Extra curricular activities include chorale, drama club, student activist groups, and intramural sports teams. Classes are normally divided into a 7/8 split, a Junior (9 and 10) and a Senior (11 and 12) groupings for required courses (English, Math, Sciences, Social Studies, Phys Ed) and intro and advanced for elective.

Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters is located near Salem Center in Westchester County, New York, roughly an hour's driveout of New York City. They have extensive grounds, 1,000 acres inherited from Charles's family, much of it left outwardly natural.


Xavier's strives to offer a high level of educational quality, and as such, interested instructors are encouraged to hold at least a Master's degree in their field of expertise. There are several doctorates both philosophical and medical amongst our faculty members, including our headmaster, Dr. Charles Xavier, PhD. Dr. Moira MacTaggart, a Nobel laureate, is a frequent visitor and sectional lecturer, and was the research advisor of both our Dr. Jean Grey and Dr. Hank McCoy at her renowned Muir Island facility.

Xavier's is a co-educational facility, accepting students from grades seven through to twelve, with a capacity enrollment of 60. The thousand-acre grounds of the Xavier's School feature access to Breakstone Lake, trails for both walking and riding, sports fields, an Olympic-sized outdoor swimming pool, and several formal gardens scattered across the wooded expanse of the property. In addition to the large Victorian-era mansion that is the central focus of the school, other buildings include a riding stable, greenhouses, and a boathouse.
