From a humble beginning in 1956 in the basement of St. Charles Borromeo, St. Pius X has grown to a top-notch academic and values-oriented school, recognized as one of the most outstanding secondary schools in New Mexico and the Southwest. Administered by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, St. Pius X is fully accredited by The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Our students come from all areas of metropolitan Albuquerque and accurately reflect its diversity. Just over 730 young men and women from grades 9 to 12 make up the student body. The typical St. Pius X student is active in school activities, athletics and fine arts while striving to prepare for their future. Over 98 percent of St. Pius X graduates go on to colleges and universities throughout the nation with many of them earning scholarships. The class of 2012 earned $7.7 million in college scholarships.
Proud of the continuing success of its students, the school aspires to meet the challenges of modern life, which now moves at the speed of electronic impulses. Students are educated in current in technology, knowledge, ethics, concepts and issues to succeed in the real world. A fine balance between where we’ve been and where we’re going sets St. Pius X apart.
