Extra-curricular activities are an important extension of the mission at St. Pius X. Because God has blessed each one of our students with special gifts and talents, it is incumbent upon the school to provide students multiple opportunities to express these gifts. While our athletic program has garnered many accolades over the years, we strive to provide students non-athletic experiences as well. Here is just a sample of the extra-curricular activities we offer our students:
- Girls: kickball (4-8th), soccer (4-8th), volleyball (4-8th), basketball (4-8th), cross country (4-8th), track (4-8th), softball (7-8th), cheerleading (3-8th)
- Boys: football (3-8th), basketball (4-8th), baseball (7-8th), soccer (4-8th), cross country (4-8th), track (4-8th), wrestling (3-8th)
- All sports teams enforce a “no cut” policy
- An after-school, “club” program designed to provide students with non-athletic opportunities such as scrabble, euchre, cooking, Mad Science, guitar and chess.
