School Profile

Tradition of Excellence


Middle school students are paired with elementary students as Prayer Buddies to foster faith, fellowship, and community.

St. Pius X has a rich history of academic excellence and tradition, with a curriculum that has been thoughtfully engineered to empower and stimulate young minds as they develop in a warm, creative environment.

Areas of Study

All students receive instruction in Religious Education, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, English and Language Arts, Physical Education, Art, Spanish, Technology, Music, and Library/Information and Research.

School Year

The school year is divided into three trimesters with mid-trimester and end of trimester reporting periods.

The school day is from 8:10 a.m. until 3:10 p.m. An Extended Day Program is offered to Pre-K through 8th-grade students before and after school.  


Saint Pius X Catholic School is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS-CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED.  The Diocese of Charlotte is the governing authority.

St. Pius partners with local restaurants to offer students the opportunity to purchase lunch.  We focus our lunch selections to healthy and delicious choices for children.  Parents are able to order lunch for their child online and the school cafeteria is staffed by parent volunteers.

Academic Enrichment


All children are unique, and no two children learn the same.  St. Pius X has an Academic Enrichment Program available for students with identified learning differences.

Our Academic Enrichment program is comprised of two teachers who assist students in elementary and middle grades and one instructional assistant.  Academic Enrichment teachers work with students and parents to create Student Accommodation Plans (SAP) for students who have learning disorders or other medical or physiological needs.  Once an SAP is created for a child, they may receive services in the form of test and assignment modification, one-on-one work with an Academic Enrichment teacher, or preferential seating in class.  

Our Academic Enrichment teachers serve using an inclusion model, meaning they come into your child's classroom to assist students in their areas of need.  These teachers might also feel it is important to work with the child individually based on the child's learning needs, and a dedicated Academic Enrichment Center is available.  

We want your child to love learning.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to discuss your child's specific needs and how we can best support and challenge your child at their individual level.
