SPX School strives to develop faith, leadership, and academic excellence.

Saint Pius X Catholic School (SPX) in Broomall, Pennsylvania strives to develop strong Christian leaders by providing an environment where faith, academics, and community service are paramount.

At Saint Pius X School, where Jesus is the Center and Mary is the Model, students are challenged to practice the IHM charism of prayer, love, hospitality, and service. SPX students embrace and strengthen their faith through daily prayer and participation in the sacraments. These young parishioners are reminded of the responsibility to share the Good News of Jesus in and beyond the SPX Parish community. As a result, students participate in service projects that benefit the less fortunate.

SPX embraces many strategies to promote academic excellence. Recent upgrades in technology have enabled teachers and students to harness the power of Google Suite. This enhanced technology has broadened the instruction capabilities of teachers and unleashed learning opportunities for students at all levels of ability. SPX continually explores ways to strengthen all areas of the curriculum. Recent additions to the reading, math, and science curricula have resulted in excellent standardized test scores as well as a remarkable number of scholarships to private and archdiocesan high schools for SPX students.

Saint Pius X Catholic School is fortunate to have a parish community that supports the faculty and staff in the vital mission of preparing students with a solid academic and Christian foundation. SPX is proud of its history of educating strong leaders and looks forward to continuing its tradition of excellence for many years to come!
