Head of School Welcome
Dear St. Pius X Family and Friends,
I welcome you to St. Pius X High School (SPX) and hope you will not only take the time to explore our website, but visit our school in person. I know that choosing a Catholic education for your child is a major decision and a tremendous sacrifice. We understand the commitment and appreciate you very much. When visiting SPX, you will have the opportunity to experience the warm, caring environment where the focus is educating the whole child. St. Pius X is not merely a school, it is a loving family where students, teachers, parents, grandparents, and many others work together to support the mission, which focuses on the four pillars of the Dominican charism: Prayer, Study, Community and Preaching.
Since 1956, St. Pius X has prepared students for the rigors of college and the complexities of life. Our college-preparatory program puts emphasis on innovation and 21st century learning, a well-rounded fine arts program, and a vast variety of co-curricular activities that meet the needs and interests of all students. Our community is proud of its rich history and is committed to student excellence.
St. Pius X High School was founded by and remains under the care of the Dominican Sisters of Houston. We are a community of faith, and we prepare our students through academic, social and spiritual learning experiences that educate and form them as they become responsible adults contributing to a global society. Our small size enables our teachers the opportunity to provide more individualized, engaging instruction to our students, as well as to focus on all areas of development. Additionally, our students form closer bonds with each other that go beyond their own age groups and extend beyond their time at SPX. At St. Pius X, it is a privilege for the faculty, staff and me to partner with you as we support the growth and development of your child.
If you are considering a Catholic high school that will continue to nurture your family’s faith and spirituality, provide you with a rigorous curriculum and also give you a true sense of belonging and having fun, then St. Pius X High School is the place for you.
I welcome you to our beautiful Panther family. Please know that if I may be of any assistance to you in any way, I am a short call or email away! Please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for visiting us and considering joining the Panther family.
