St. Pius X Regional School is accredited by AdvancED with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement. It welcomes students in Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade of all religious, racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Religion is a part of daily life at St. Pius X. Regular Mass attendance and class participation in the preparation of liturgies is a treasured part of the religious education program. The school community strives to provide an environment to nurture and empower each child to live a faith-centered life and grow into a respectful, responsible and caring Christian young adult.
Our program welcomes students in one full day class. The 8:10 am to 2:30 pm session features reading readiness, spiritual, and social development. The Pre-K class has a supervised dedicated play area that is separate from the main playground.
Our two Kindergarten classes welcome 25 students in each of these full-day classes. The 8:10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. sessions feature reading readiness, spiritual, and social development.
The St. Pius X Regional School faculty is degreed, with many of its teachers holding advanced degrees and has a history of stable tenure. The faculty sees it as their purpose to help instill in each child the desire to learn, to explore, and to further each childs relationship with God and others. There are degreed teacher aides in kindergarten through grade three.
Parent involvement makes St. Pius X Regional School unique. The school recognizes that parents are the first and most important teachers of the children. The HSA and the School Advisory Board are examples of how the faculty, principal, pastor and parents come together to provide service and vision for the children and the school community.
