More about Marty Zielonko and the College Placement Site
The St. Pius X College Placement Office helps students and parents understand the complexities of the college admissions process. I work one-on-one with each student to assess their academic and personal needs, leading to an appropriate selection of institutions at which to apply.

I cannot emphasize enough personally visiting colleges early and often. Car trips to and from campuses are great times to process what the College Search Process is all about. It is time and money very well spent. Making the right college choice based on experiencing the place and investigating its programs and having other schools to compare it against help lead to a sound educational choice with lifelong consequences!
College Credits and the College Search Process
St. Pius X High School offers college credit courses through St. Louis University and University of Missouri St. Louis.
The result of taking College Credit classes and earning CC credits could include three possibilities:
The college accepts the college credits as a direct replacement.
The college accepts the credits but applies them to the general education credit requirements of the college.
The college does not accept any college credits taken in high school or caps the number taken.
