Welcome to St. Pius X School. We are very excited to work with parents and the community to provide an education for the children we serve. Historically, our students have met with great success in our classrooms. We have had several students graduate from St. Pius who have gone on to become valedictorians, salutatorians, and/or graduate in the top 10% of their high school class. We have also had several graduates who have received several honors for their athletic talents. At St. Pius, families find a caring school, which also challenges children to use their God-given gifts to reach their fullest potential.
I believe education is a process that encompasses not only a child’s academic ability, but also his or her social, emotional, and behavioral skills as well. When guided children grow in their awareness of self and others in order to become contributing citizens in the community in which they live. Children need to feel capable of growing in all aspects of their lives. They need to understand and accept responsibility for their actions. A child can learn these skills where love is shared and felt. St. Pius is a place where children are made to feel welcome, loved, respected, and cared for in order to ensure that they are able to meet their full potential.
St. Pius X is a part of the Diocese of Jefferson City. Our diocese supports the Catholic schools within its diocese. Its philosophy includes the following:
Catholic Schools are noted for their excellent academic achievement, environment conducive to teaching and learning, and values education. They exist primarily to participate in the educational mission of the Catholic Church. Their goal is to develop the total person, stressing a deeper appreciation of the gift of faith. Professional, dedicated teachers contribute to the attainment of this goal by supporting a school environment which:
Every Catholic school in the Diocese of Jefferson City respects the dignity of each individual and, therefore, will not discriminate on the basis of race, nationality, or sex in regard to enrollment, except as permitted by law.
St. Pius X prides itself in our long-standing traditions of high academic expectations while nurturing the growth of the spiritual self. We welcome all families to our school community!
