Freshman Orientation is now part of the scheduled curriculum for all freshmen. During these three mandatory school days, incoming fresmen learn the skills they need to be successful at Pius XI High School.
Big Buddies: Pius XI seniors in the Big Buddy program help incoming freshmen transition into the Pius XI community. Together they work to develop the relationship between their physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and social selves in order to help freshmen understand and live a Christian lifestyle.
TAC: The Teacher Advisor Contact
(TAC) program is another Pius XI innovation that builds community and provides students with daily attention from an adult mentor, advisor and friend. TACs are small communities of 15-20 students from all grade levels that interact with each other daily. Students are mentored by a faculty member (TAC teacher) who provides a home base, and serves as the liaison between students and their subject teachers, as well as between parents and the school.
