At Pius XI Catholic High School those aren’t just words on a page… they are words to live by.

Pius XI Catholic High School is a Place for Everyone. Period.

It’s a place for theater lovers and athletes, a home for artists and engineers. Some students sail through AP Calculus, while others conquer their own individual learning challenges.

Day in and day out, the ties that bind all Pius XI Catholic High School students are the rigorous academic standards and faith based focus on a fully engaged life.

In a community defined by diversity, a free flow of ideas and experiences is celebrated and promoted through an intentional focus on elevating the mind, spirit and whole person.

“Our academic program is expansive with over 100 course offerings, intentionally integrated, and personalized.”
Melinda Skrade, President Pius XI

It’s a Place Where Students Expand Their Minds

Our academic program is expansive with over 100 course offerings. Despite the variety, we manage to stay intentionally intimate, integrated, and personalized with connections built into our curriculum that allow students access to resources and one-on-one instruction.

Pius XI students are guided through their formative high school years by a college-style schedule (Mod) that promotes self-discipline and individuality. This unique training makes the transition to post-secondary education smooth and purposeful.

It’s a Place Where Students Flourish

Pius XI Catholic High School is a place where real and genuine relationships between students and teachers are built on character, substance and integrity. Respect for self, others, and the community is at the heart of every interaction – and every moment of discernment and growth.

Working together to develop and share each individual’s God-given talents results in the formation of independent, grounded, and curious students of the world who believe in service and hard work.

This is the Pius XI Catholic High School experience, and why, “You Belong Here!”
