Academic Help

Academic Help is always available at St. Pius X High School!

St. Pius X High School believes in giving extraordinary care and concern to each individual student. We offer several programs to help a student who is struggling academically.


Academic Intervention Program

A student may be put on Academic Intervention when they have earned two or more F’s. The intervention begins with the counselor meeting with the student to discuss the current academic status. Parents will then be contacted. Students on Academic Intervention must attend the ASAP (Academic Success Assistance Program until they have earned a C or better in all of their classes. The purpose of this intervention is to make the student aware of the consequences of failing grades, prevent semester failures, and develop a plan of success.


Academic Success Assistance Program (ASAP)

Academic Success Assistance Program/ASAP is a structured study hall that meets Monday through Thursday for the first half of lunch. Students are provided with missing assignment lists as well as peer tutors. Teachers are also available to come help and answer questions. Students not mandated to come to ASAP everyday may choose the option of coming twice a week (M/W or T/Th). 


Mandatory Learning Center

Mandatory Learning Center meets every Friday morning and is for students who have not completed their assignments during the week. Tutors are available to assist students, and the extended time (80 minutes compared to 25 minutes in ASAP) allows for more in-depth work on papers or multiple assignments. 


Learning Consultant

St. Pius X has a Learning Consultant to assist students with special academic needs. This person meets with each student who has a learning disability and designs a learning profile. This profile states the student's disability and the accommodations that teachers should make in order for the student to succeed. The Learning Consultant meets with the principal once a month to discuss the status of these students. If a student with special needs is not succeeding, the principal. Learning Consultant and the teachers will figure out what they can do to make the student succeed.9
