WHY CHOOSE ST. PIUS X CATHOLIC SCHOOL?
Because we teach our students more than reading, writing, science, math and social studies. We believe teaching faith, service, stewardship and love of Christ least to lasting family values and citizenship on earth and in heaven.
“I was able to join the students here at St. Pius for Eucharistic Adoration. It was wonderful to see the classes come into the church so reverently and quietly to spend time with our Lord. I was grateful for this time of being in the true Presence of Jesus, to Praise, Adore and give Him Thanks. What a 'Gift' Mr. Kaplan and Father Robert gave to the children, parents, and staff that day. Thank You!"-Kathy Brcic
“Throughout my years at St. Pius, I have grown spiritually, academically and athletically. The weekly mass has helped me grow closer to God. The academics here are the reason I am the person that I am today. I have played baseball, basketball, football and improved in all three.” -Blase Haynes 8th grader
- Our school continues to score higher than the national average on standardized tests.

We judge success based on higher standards. What kind of person will our students become? What kinds of lives will our students lead? St. Pius X provides more than academic excellence. From preschool to high school, we offer unique support, personal attention, faith, service, and a caring community, all of which instills lasting values in students and gives them direction in life. We believe in the Catholic faith, and we open our doors to all walks of faith with a life centered in Christ and service to others.
So if you are looking for a school that sets high expectations, challenges children academically, builds character and instills Gospel values, then enroll your child in St. Pius X Catholic School.
