History

Charles Xavier established his school for 'gifted youngsters' in the 60s. It was not until the 80s, however, that it truly became a private educational institution. He recruited young mutants as near to their manifestation as possible and brought them to the school for both a traditional education and training in their mutation.

The school operated as a secret haven for mutants until 2007, when Xavier and Jean Grey announced its existence to the world. For thirty-seven years, Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters took in and educated a remarkable number of mutant students, often providing scholarships for those most in need. They persisted in their autonomy despite the growing public distrust of mutants.

In 2044, the State of New York took control of the school following the death of Charles Xavier, citing public safety. Whatever negotiations took place were not public, but in the end, the school was allowed to remain just that, though its numbers were swollen by any mutants that found their way into the public system.

Scott Summers became headmaster, and many of the original staff remained. Mutational education shifted largely to aspects of control rather than use, and the school was renamed to simply 'Xavier's School'. The State views the school as a means to keep young mutants largely quarantined and to teach them to keep dangerous mutations in check.
