Fine Arts



Fine Arts at St. Pius X School


At St. Pius, your child will establish a lifelong appreciation for the arts.  Fine art classes and extracurricular activities offer students of all skill levels the opportunity to explore, or discover, a passion for the arts.  Students have the opportunity to develop new skills in a supportive environment. We approach each discipline with a balance of historical, theoretical, and practical instruction, as well as an emphasis on innovation and imagination. The Fine Arts department is supported by faculty, administration, and parents.


"Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord." 
Ephesians 5:19

Visual Arts

At St. Pius, students learn to express themselves through a variety of media in art class and after school activities. Rooted in an appreciation for art history and technique, students learn about the lives of famous artists and their bodies of work, and then they attempt to create their own masterpiece.  


The music program at St. Pius is designed to offer students of all levels of experience education in vocal and instrumental music. K-8 students attend music classes in which they participate in singing, dancing, and learning to play ukuleles and recorders. In their weekly music classes, St. Pius X students learn to make a joyful noise to the Lord!  St. Pius X also has three music ensembles that practice outside of the normal school day:

  • Band (4th-8th grades)
  • Choir (4th-8th grades)
  • Guitar Ensemble (3rd-8th grades)

Students in band, choir, and the guitar ensemble have the opportunity to showcase their talents at our annual Christmas Program and Spring Music & Arts showcase.  The choir sings at school Mass in the church on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 am. The school band and choir perform annually at the Carowinds Festival of Music, and they have received an Excellent or Superior rating every year.



The St. Pius X Drama Club offers students in grades 4-8 the opportunity to express themselves through singing, dancing, and acting. The students work as a team to bring a story to life on the stage and to share their gifts with the school and the community. Our productions have included “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Shrek,” “The Little Mermaid,” and “The Lion King.” The club meets after school and on Saturdays leading up to a production.
