We Are Guided by Faith. Living the Catholic Identity

Pius XI Catholic High School is called to a mission that is grounded in the love of Jesus and the faith of the Catholic Church.

In the Pallottine and Franciscan traditions, Pius XI invites students and families from all backgrounds into a dynamic community of teachers and learners of faith and faith-in-action.

Our Students Learn the Value of Their Faith, In and Outside the Classroom

Pius XI students are immersed in a Christ-centered learning environment shaped by communion and community. Each student is nurtured for growth in mind, body and spirit in an environment that strengthens foundational intellectual and spiritual formation.

In our classrooms, students are encouraged to adopt a way of life that embraces service and challenges them to vigorously pursue academic excellence and faithfulness to Christ.

Students at Pius XI develop more than the knowledge and skills necessary to prosper in today’s and tomorrow’s world.

They are inspired with the faith and virtues to help make them self-confident women and men of outstanding character.
