History

From www.piusx.net:"We opened on October 1, 1956 by Bishop Louis B. Kucera, Pius X High School was established as the central Catholic high school for the city of Lincoln and the Diocese of Lincoln. Since its earliest years, Pius has grown to over 1,000 students in grades 9-12, with over 80 faculty and staff made up of both religious and lay people. When the school was named after Pope St. Pius X, it took its patron’s motto, "To restore all things in Christ", as its guiding mission. This mission is evident in the academic opportunities and the variety of activities (clubs, athletics, and organizations) offered to students.

Pius X High School is proud of the close bond that is created among its many members. As evidenced by our thriving alumni organization and other supporters, all who are connected to the school in some way quickly become part of the Pius family. Whether you are a current member of the family, seeking to join the family, or simply a visiting guest, we invite you to "walk through" our school. Check our calendar of events or browse our monthly newsletter. The family is the basic unit of our church. Welcome to our family, and welcome to our home!"

On February 16, 2007, Pius X High School had the privilege of welcoming Former Nebraska Cornhusker football coach Dr. Tom Osborne as a guest speaker. Mr. Osborne talked to the school about the importance of character and how one's character is shaped by everyday choices.

During the 2007-2008 school year, Pius X High School was made a member of the Catholic Honor Roll, distinguishing the top 50 Catholic High Schools in the United States of America.
