St. Pius X Mission Statement
Our Mission: We exist to teach and live in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. We partner
with parents, the primary educators of their children, as we work together towards developing
each child to his/her greatest potential. Each child, regardless of race, cultural heritage, or gender will grow in their self-esteem, develop talents and nurture their natural skills and interests
to help them become responsible leaders of tomorrow.
Diocese of Des Moines Schools
Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Des Moines, based on the teaching of Jesus Christ
and the mission of the Church, are collaborative communities of spiritual formation and academic
excellence, where students grow in faith and wisdom emerge as responsible citizens dedicated
to the practice of life-long discipleship.
We develop and inspire learning for life by providing a world class education within a Catholic
environment for our students.
Catholic schools exist to enable students to learn the traditions and doctrines of the Catholic
Church and to carry out the Gospel message of Jesus Christ in their daily lives.
Each student in Catholic schools experience the value of human dignity and the concepts of
peace and justice to enable them to be participants in a global society.
Catholic schools and parishes are partners with parents in the education of the children.
Catholic school educators apply research-based curriculum and instructional strategies that
enhance the learning of all students.
