“We believe that St. Pius X High School is one of the best kept secrets in Kansas City. The faculty and staff do a wonderful job of challenging students academically and at the same time teaching the importance of community. We were confident that both our children were academically and spiritually prepared for the challenges they would face in college.

Joseph graduated in 2015 and is a senior engineering student at Texas A&M and participates in Air Force ROTC. Caroline graduated in 2017 and is a 2nd year student in the UMKC School of Medicine. Gina and I appreciate that Catholic values permeate every aspect of school life; morning prayer, Mass, religion class, service projects, retreats and prayer groups. It is an education for the WHOLE person.”
