The tradition continues, be a part of it, be a Sartan. Now taking applications for incoming fall '22 freshmen and transfers.
St. Pius X welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds to apply. Prospective incoming freshmen and transfer students should review the “How to Enroll” page for application information. We also accept senior year admissions, but only students transferring from other Catholic high schools are considered.

An applicant to the freshmen class must have satisfactorily completed the eighth grade or its equivalent. SPX accepts applicants on the basis of our placement test, previous academic performance (grades and standardized test scores), the recommendation of teachers, and the promise of the student’s future development in the areas of the school's mission as a Catholic college preparatory school.
Entrance Exam - HSPT
The high school placement test (HSPT) is open to prospective, incoming freshmen. The next scheduled test date is on June 2nd. The HSPT requires about 4 hours to complete, and tests verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, math skills, language arts skills, and science. Students should bring two no. 2 pencils, a bottle of water, and a snack. Calculators are not allowed. For more information, visit the HSPT page by clicking here.
