Pius XI High School''s college-ready program starts with outstanding academics that challenge and motivate all students to reach their full potential. As the largest private high school in Wisconsin, we can offer students more than 100 courses to choose from including 12 Advanced Placement classes. Throughout our 11 teaching departments students have the opportunity to engage in intellectual dialogue, develop critical thinking skills, strengthen moral character and cultivate an appreciation for life-long learning.
At Pius XI High School, academic integrity is a building block of our community. In all actions – in the classroom, as well as in summer programs, athletics, or co-curricular – students are held to a standard of maturity and responsibility. As a community we value academic honesty and respect. Dishonesty compromises academic and moral integrity and will be met with serious consequences. Academic departments or individual teachers may elaborate more specific criteria and consequences regarding academic integrity.
Academic dishonesty includes—but is not limited to—any type of cheating, such as plagiarizing, copying another student’s work, letting someone copy your work, or using resources like calculators, notebooks or cell phones when not allowed.
Consequences may include—but are not limited to—a failing grade, losing privileges like an Honor Schedule, serving detention, or being disbarred from National Honor Society. In instances of academic dishonesty, a teacher may communicate with a student’s parents, a department chair and the administration.
