"I LOVE PIUS X BECAUSE…With only a few weeks left before graduation I’ve begun to look back on my time at Pius X fondly. The teachers and staff make Pius feel like a home away from home. I am ready to take on the challenges of college because my Pius education has prepared me to do so. I will always be a Thunderbolt at heart."
