Updates from the Pius XI Office of Admissions

Dear Class of 2026 families,

We will begin our Lenten Journey with an Ash Wednesday Mass on March 2 celebrated by Archbishop Listecki. We celebrate all school Mass in the fieldhouse as it is the only area large enough to accommodate our community. Our neighbors next door from St. Vincent Pallotti will also be joining us!

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

Have a wonderful weekend,

Angie, Jeanna, and Kelly

Pius XI Winter Preview Event

Did you miss Open House? Have you been meaning to schedule a tour? Or do you just need one last look? We invite you to join us for an evening of tours at the Pius XI Winter Preview Event on Tuesday, March 1. This event is best for 7th and 8th grade students and parents, and will feature tours led by a current Pius XI student. The Admissions team as well as our President, Mr. Jack Herbert, will be available to answer questions as well. Pre-registration is required by filling out the registration form found HERE. We hope you can join us!

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.
