Pius XI. A Foundation for Success

For over 80 years, Pius XI Catholic High School has prepared young people from all backgrounds for success in college and in life.

Our success is built on offering unmatched curricular and extracurricular opportunities coupled with a faith-based approach to moral character development.

It’s what we do – we love it, and we’re good at it.

Together. A Community with Shared Focus

Our culture is shaped by communion and community – where collaboration, student-centered learning, creativity and innovation are the hallmarks of success.

Each student receives personal individualized attention through our herald Teacher Advisor Contact (T.A.C.) program – a program which provides important continuing mentorship throughout a student’s four-year high school career.

As our global reach becomes more and more pronounced, we welcome students from around the world to come, study and live as one of our culturally-centered Pius XI student scholars.

“I love Pius XI! It was the best decision I’ve ever made to come here. Everyone is so nice and welcomig.”
Angie, Class of 2019
