Being a student at Saint Pius X Catholic School, explained by one of our 8th grade students: Being a student at SPX for 8 years has been an amazing experience. I’ve made many friends, participated in the basketball program, tennis program, and have enjoyed the atmosphere of it’s education. Not only that, it has a wonderful church parish. The faculty and staff at SPX have taught me about my faith, and have motivated me to help others. All around, SPX is a great school, and a place where I feel safe. My faith knowledge has expanded and been strengthened ever since I became a student here at SPX. I personally feel like the faith formation that is taught at Saint Pius X is fantastic. Plus, it makes me excited to actually learn. I always look forward to learning about my faith because there is so much I haven't discovered. Also, school Mass each week is wonderful. The Homily is actually quite fun, and educating at the same time. I feel that SPX has given me the faith formation that I will use throughout my life. Saint Pius X Catholic School provides its students with a foundation of knowledge to meet its high academic and moral standards. In addition, the faculty and staff have provided me with the skills I need to be successful in high school. As an eight grade student at SPX, I have had the privilege of having this fantastic education as a member of this school community. Between the support of the faculty, staff, and students, I feel that my education at SPX has given me power to succeed in life. SPX offers tons of service to our community. For example, on the first Friday of every month, each student donates one dollar to our sister parish in Peru, while in turn getting a dress-code free day! Also, we help out with our elderly community. Hall Towers, a block away from our school, provides housing for senior citizens. The middle school students frequently host bingo games and brighten their day. SPX serves others through various community outreach opportunities such as Crop Walk, the Canned Soup Drive, and the Christmas Giving Tree. One of the reasons that I like SPX is due to the fact that we are so helpful to our community. After all, SPX is a wonderful place to be. It has all the aspects of a high reputation Catholic school. If you ask me, it’s the greatest school I’ve attended! My school has shaped my life through faith formation, a solid foundation of knowledge, and community service. I am so grateful to be a member of the SPX community.
The Importance of Catholic Education at Saint Pius X, explained by one of our 8th grade students: I have been attending Saint Pius X Catholic School since 2010, when I was in fourth grade. When I first came here, I had no idea I would like it as much as I do. In fact, I thought I was going to be miserable; however, once I met my teacher, and found a few friends, I felt much better about the whole situation. As time went on, I started to realize how much I loved being at a Catholic school, and how many opportunities I have here that I wouldn’t otherwise, in my faith, knowledge, and service. Firstly, my time at Saint Pius X has strengthened my faith in ways I could never imagine, particularly, in going through middle school religion classes. I have come to understand what the Catholic Church teaches about numerous topics, and what it means to be a Catholic and a Christian. I have also learned how to act when confronted with real-life issues Catholics face all the time, and often do not know how to handle. In sixth grade, we learned about the Old Testament and people such as Noah, Abraham, as well as many others. This gave us all a firm foundation to what we would learn in the next year. In seventh grade, we covered the New Testament, and all about Jesus, the end of time, and transubstantiation, as well as the essential things that the Catholic Church teaches. This year, in eighth grade we are learning about morality, and what it takes to live a moral life. This is a type of education you can’t get just anywhere, only in a unique environment, such as a Catholic school. There have been many times when I have talked with other Christians and I thought, “Wow, you really have no idea what you believe,” and after being at Saint Pius I know nobody will ever think that while talking to me. Secondly, I can honestly say that without St. Pius X, I would not have near the knowledge capacity I do. I had been told countless times by a countless number of people how lucky I am to be receiving a private, Catholic education, but I never realized just how lucky until I became exposed to other types of schools through shadowing and speaking with some of the students. It really put it into perspective for me how fortunate we all are to have the academic tools we need to do anything we wish. While being at a Catholic school, we have all been given an exceptional education and have been thoroughly prepared for every academic challenge that may come our way. In the Catholic school system, students have the opportunity to serve in ways unlike those attending other kinds of schools. Just last December; we made Christmas cards for a little girl who would be celebrating her last Christmas. I doubt many schools have the same firm commitment to serving others, as we do here at Saint Pius. I have participated in bingo at Hall Towers, Crop Walk, and raising money for a school in Peru, among others. As Saint Thomas Aquinas said, “Love takes up where knowledge leaves off.” This is what Catholic school is all about; when all the learning and work is finished, we are taught how to love and serve others both in Greensboro and across the world. Overall, I would not trade the experiences I have had at St. Pius X Catholic School for anything. While being here I have learned about scholarly topics, how to be a good person, and, most importantly, how to love God to the fullest. As Saint John Bosco said, “Walk with your feet on Earth, but in your heart, be in heaven.”
