"I came into my freshman year of college well prepared for my rigorous science courses. While many of my peers at college struggled with concepts in chemistry and writing college-level papers, I felt confident in both my scientific problem-solving skills and writing abilities. Both my classes and the teachers at Pius X prepared me to succeed in college, in the classroom and as a good role model for my peers."

Our Mission

To enrich the mind, heart and soul of each student through a Christ-centered, Catholic environment that provides academic excellence and preparation to achieve a meaningful, faith-filled life.

"Pius X teachers always challenged me to think of different ways to solve problems. This leads to innovative and exciting solutions to design problems throughout a career. The teachers were always encouraging and motivating, which helped me to believe I could achieve whatever I set my mind to."

"The focus of theology courses senior year on defending and understanding the faith was helpful for going out into the world beyond our protected bubble of Catholic school. It made students really think about their beliefs and why they believe those things. It prepared me to have intellectual conversations with people in college who don't have the same beliefs as me."

I feel like Pius prepared me extremely well for college. All the classes I am currently taking are much easier than classes I took in high school (so far) and for most of my classes that is because of what I learned at Pius. For example, both my Calculus and Spanish classes right now feel like more of a review.
