Principal's Welcome

At St. Pius X School, we are extremely proud of our rich heritage of over 50 years. We are even more excited and confident about our future. Although teaching children about their Catholic faith is the main reason for our existence, we are equally as strong in our academic offerings. Students of all faiths are welcome and encouraged to enroll.

We offer a variety of programs and enrichment opportunities that allow each student to grow to his/her ability academically, morally, socially, physically, and individually.

Thank you for your interest in our school! I am happy to arrange a private tour for families interested in exploring enrollment at St. Pius X School.

I am here to serve and inform you of all the benefits St. Pius X School has to families seeking a first-class education and the foundation for a rich and fully developed future.

Please contact me at the school office at (319) 393-4507 or bodonnell@stpiusxschoolcr.com for further information.

Mr. O'Donnell

Brian O’Donnell
