"I was so impressed after meeting the faculty during Academic Night. I am very excited about sending both of my kids to St. Pius X. The teachers seem so passionate about what they are doing. Each and every teacher I met radiated the love they have for teaching. They really care about the kids and their success. Trevor and Maddy's education is our #1 priority, and it is so nice to know that they are surrounded by such a wonderful group of teachers and faculty."  - Rhonda Kassen, '88 current parent

"Making choices is a part of everyday life, making the choice about your child's education is a responsibility and commitment to their life's success. This choice is the first in a series of some of the most important decisions you and your son/daughter will make together. Continue your commitment to Catholic education and join the extraordinary community of St. Pius X High School."  - Beth Duepner, current parent


"After researching several all girl private schools in St. Louis, both of our daughters chose to attend St. Pius X High School. Because of the safe environment and close-knit 'family' of students and staff, the atmosphere made them feel welcome. Both girls are thriving and feel they're right where they belong. And, with the tuition being one of the most economical in the St. Louis Archdiocese, we feel we're getting tremendous value for our tuition dollars. It's a win-win situation for our whole family!"  - Scott Held, current parent


"St. Pius X high School is a winner when it comes to the small class sizes. I believe this allows the students ranging from the incoming freshman to meet sophomores who have now mastered their freshman year; ask juniors what it is like to be an upperclassman and to seek the guidance of senior classmate." - Anonymous, current parent

All of which are essential to ensure the development of a successful individual." - Brittany Copeland, '11

"I have been very pleased with St. Pius X. I feel the school is academically challenging and is giving our children a sound and strong foundation for college. One of my favorite things to share about St. Pius is the kindness shared by its students and staff. It has a "family feel.

The exposure to other schools and programs while in Michigan provides us a sound basis to assess and compliment the tremendous opportunity St. Pius offers to all that come through their doors." - Bret & Debra Klahs, current parents

"As a student of St. Pius X, I have come to find out the various stories I have heard are completely true. It was always rumored, from friends who had attended to other random people, that the staff of the school were friendly, the class sizes were smaller than average, and the student body sizes were so small you knew everyone in your class by the fall of freshman year. Having just completed my freshman year I have learned that all of these elements and aspects of St. Pius are true and can be witnessed during any given day."  - Kate Stefan, Class of 2012

"Looking back on my freshman year at Pius, I think what impressed me most was the opportunities given to students to become involved in community service. At St. Pius X we are required to provide 100 hours of service in order to graduate. I already have 45 hours completed by doing things like taking dinner to a homeless shelter and helping serve, going to Jefferson City and lobbying against the Freedom of Choice Act, raising money to fund building a house in Haiti, and soliciting donations of clothing and baby items for a Birthright baby shower. St. Pius X posts opportunities for community service in the hallway! These opportunities offered me a chance to step back from my busy day to day high school life and realize that there is a bigger world out there with people less fortunate than myself that I am responsible for helping. St. Pius X helps me honor that mission." - Elaine Surdyke, Class of 2012
