NEWORLEANS - Xavier Prep has been a staple in the community for years, and the fight to save it from closing was a success.

Hard work and prayers by a group of alumni paid off.

They were able to buy the school and keep it open another year.

Keith Doley and Piper Griffin are some of the alumni who put in the offer to purchase the school.

You can help the new St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory High School by sending donations to the Xavier Prep Alumni Foundation or the Xavier Prep Foundation.
