A model Catholic school in the 21st century

A model Catholic school in the 21st century

St. Pius X Regional School is an outstanding example of how an established traditional Catholic school can adapt to changing times and excel in providing an academically rich education to students with the support of certified professional teachers, administrators, and engaged family and community partners. The school, which opened in 1963, provides an exceptional, co-educational program for 560 students in Pre-K through eighth grade. The school is thriving and learning takes place tailored to the curriculum as set forth by the Archdiocese of Washington using the newest technology and best practices and strategies in education today. Through the cooperation of the faculty and parents, the school seeks to support a diverse student body with a variety of needs and learning styles, and to nourish the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth of its students. As a regional Catholic school, St. Pius X Regional School differs from the traditional parochial school model in that it serves students from 4 different parishes in the city of Bowie. It is through a strong faith-based foundation, increased parent and student communication, strong school leadership, leveraging technology where appropriate, supporting teachers that are excited about teaching, and creating robust community engagement, that St. Pius X Regional School will continue to thrive and be a model Catholic school in the 21st century. St. Pius X Regional School sends into society a child well equipped with a strong education based on Catholic values.
