Affording SPX

Admissions

At St. Pius X High School, our student body is as diverse as Houston itself. Our community is comprised of members from different socioeconomic, religious, and ethnic backgrounds and more than 102 different zip codes; we truly believe our differences are what makes us stronger.

That’s why we don’t want tuition costs to ever deter a future leader from joining our community. Approximately 30% of our students receive need based tuition assistance and more than 40% receive some type of tuition assistance or scholarship. The average tuition assistance awarded in 2021-2022 was over $6,800, making our annual tuition of $17,600 even more affordable.
