Admissions Process

  3. You will be contacted by the Admissions Office to schedule a placement assessment for your student. This is conducted by St. Pius X Catholic School and is required of all new students to determine their readiness for the grade to which they are applying and to help us determine whether we are able to support their strengths and needs. You will receive the results of the assessment.

Once we receive a teacher/caregiver's evaluation and any applicable academic documents pertaining to the student, our admissions committee will meet to review the student's application packet and his/her placement test results.
