National Honor Society. A Pius XI Tradition

The National Honor Society at Pius XI is a member of the Oak Leaf Chapter of the national organization and has been an active organization over the course of many decades.

As a chapter of the national group that has been in existence since the 1920s, Pius XI is rooted in the tradition of academic excellence and scholarly growth.
