Xander went back to college in March 2014 to take up Journalism and Mass Communications.

According to, Xander decided to put his entertainment career on hold to focus on fulfilling his and his parents' dream.

He was quoted as saying, "One of the biggest reasons is I promised myself and my family that I will continue studying no matter what. So I think now is a good timing."

In 2017, he made his debut on Philippine prime-time television after starring in My Korean Jagiya with Heart Evangelista.
