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 freshman class must satisfactorily complete the eighth grade or its equivalent. SPX accepts applicants on the basis of 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.
Placement Tests
The placement tests are open to prospective students. They are used to determine placement, they are not an admissions test. For more information, visit the placement test page by clicking here.
