    I walked into St. Pius X as a shy, naive freshman with a history of irresponsibility and a lack of social direction. In my first month, I was fully in control of my studies, monitoring my own schedule and found new social connections. After over three years, I have a 4.1 gpa, am a member of the National Honor Society, acted in 6 plays and musicals, was an officer on the student council and am the student body president for my senior year.
    The teachers and administration take an active role in guiding the students in a direction to help them to grow from children to adults in just a few years. I’ve had a rigorous academic program with honors and AP courses. These have helped me to develop strong study habits that will lead me into a college program with ease. St. Pius X faculty are like family and make the kids feel welcome and at home all the time as well. You can’t go wrong with choosing SPX for your high school education.

    My son, a rising senior, has enjoyed his HS experience. Although he is not one to volunteer too much information without prodding, he/we have come to appreciate the amazing diversity, camaraderie and character of fellow SPX students and staff. When your kid needs it, he will get a second chance. When your kid needs discipline, she will get that too. Amazingly (to me) 100% of faculty, staff and administrators have contributed financially to the school's primary fundraiser for the last 10 years! No doubt they believe in the vision of maturing successful, kind and compassionate kids too.
    During my son's 8th grade tour of the school he was won over. What impressed my son was the academics, DIVERSITY, athletics, and the welcome they received. What I like as a parent of course is the excellent academics and the many opportunities to grow as a young adult here at SPX. SPX has so much to offer young adults from athletics, clubs, to college credits. Every young person needs to attend a well-rounded school and that school is SPX. Another great thing about SPX is that each and every time you enter the school you are welcomed with smiles and kindness.
