Updates from the Pius XI Office of Admissions

Dear Class of 2026 families,

To begin our Lenten journey, Archbishop Jerome Listecki celebrated Ash Wednesday Mass at Pius XI for the 13th year in a row. We feel blessed that Archbishop Listecki was able to join us once again.

Please see below for updates regarding Milwaukee Parental Choice.

If you have not already done so, please be sure to fill out the Athletic and World Language Surveys below.

Enjoy the warm weather this weekend!

World Language Survey

The World Language Survey helps us properly prepare for how many students may enroll in French or Spanish. We have students coming from many different middle schools with multiple levels of world language experience and this survey gives us a better understanding of your student's exposure to world language.

If you did not complete the survey at Course Selection Night, had a virtual appointment, or have an upcoming course selection appointment, please complete the survey HERE.

The World Language Department will offer a placement test in French and Spanish during the week of May 23-27. A link to the placement test will be emailed, and your student will be able to complete the test virtually. More details to come!

Athletic Survey

Organized sports are a big part of high school for many students. The Pius XI Athletic Department wants to make sure that they have reached out to all of the student athletes in the Class of 2026 with information regarding coaching, registration, and try out dates.

Please take a few moments to fill out this brief survey HERE regarding athletics for the upcoming school year. This is the best way to get your student on the radar of specific coaches.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Kate Radosevic in the Athletic Office at kradosevic@piusxi.org.
