St. Pius V school has a ninety-year history of academic excellence in the Dominican tradition. In 1917, the Dominican Order founded Providence College and St. Pius V Parish. Twelve years later, Dominican Sisters from Blauvelt, New York opened St. Pius V Elementary School. The school is currently staffed by the Dominican Sisters of Nashville, Tennessee and an exceptional lay faculty.
Rooted in the Catholic faith, our school aims to foster growth of the whole child. This philosophy is articulated in the following goals:
- To develop within the students the ability to manifest Gospel values and Christian attitudes in their daily lives;
- To provide each student with a challenging academic education grounded in problem solving and critical thinking;
- To provide a cultural arts program that encourages creativity and aesthetic awareness;
- To cultivate a cohesive school community which is energetic, supportive, and secure.
