School Profile

Pius XI Catholic High School is more than a school: it’s a community.

Our students walk in the door their first year and often leave at graduation as different people – and we couldn’t be more proud of them.

There are countless opportunities for students to grow and excel at Pius XI. Traditional high school activities are in place alongside our rigorous academics.

Plus there is so much more from an award-winning and renowned visual arts program to high quality athletic coaching… from learning how to walk with Christ to demonstrating it through community service.

Pius XI is a school unlike any other.
