Pius XI Catholic High School has been staffed by the School Sisters of St. Francis since our founding in 1929. Under their faithful leadership, many of our traditions are rooted in the Franciscan charism.
This charism translates into striving to embody the gifts given by God to St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi as they responded to living the Gospel. As a Franciscan school, we are all called to integrate the Gospel values into our daily life.
The gospel values of the Franciscan charism include poverty, humility, contemplation, peacemaking, care of persons, and care of the earth. These are the values we invite members of our school community to explore – both in and outside the classroom.
