St. Pius X Catholic Elementary School
St. Pius X Catholic Elementary School is a dynamic student centered community that nurtures a faith-filled educational experience for all. We have an emphasis on inclusion within our school with each child being given opportunities to develop the talents they have been given by God, to their full potential. At St. Pius X we recognize that each student and staff member is unique and in the pursuit of success. Our aim is to provide educational experiences that will foster success through personal growth and development, inclusion, creativity, collaboration, inquiry and faith development.
We believe in and aspire to create a compassionate and nurturing environment where all children understand, respect and value themselves and others. Inspired by the spirit we teach minds, touch hearts, and transform lives.

St. Pius X Catholic School is happy to work in partnership with St. Andrew's Parish to support parents and children in preparing for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion. Sacramental Sessions are offered in the fall.
All of the Schools in the Edmonton Catholic School District use a Religious Education Program that is prescribed by our Alberta Bishops and provided through the National Office for Religious Education in Ottawa. The Program ranges from Kindergarten to Grade Twelve, and offers students with an overview of our Catholic faith as well as grade specific themes.
Our School Namesake: St. Pius X
| POPE ST. PIUS X (1835-1914) Feast: August 21 Perhaps nowhere in the history of the Church is there a better example of a man possessed of so many of the saintly virtues—piety, charity, deep humility, pastoral zeal, and simplicity—than in one of the newest of God's elect, St. Pius X. Yet the parish priest of Tombolo, who remained a country priest at heart throughout his life, faced the problems and evils of a strife-torn world with the spiritual fervor of a crusader. The inscription on his tomb in the crypt of the basilica of St. Peter's gives the most eloquent testimony to a life spent in the service of God:
"Born poor and humble of heart, Undaunted champion of the Catholic faith, Zealous to restore all things in Christ, Crowned a holy life with a holy death."
Celebrations take place throughout the year and are provided to all of the school community through our website and newsletter at www.stpiusx.ecsd.net
