St. Pius X High School heading into the Winter Break

(Festus/Crystal City) Wednesday is the last day of the semester for students at St. Pius X High School.

Students will be taking end of course exams and adjourn for the winter break which begins on Thursday.

St. Pius President Jim Lehn says the intermission between the first and second semester is a great time for prospective students to transfer in.

We asked Lehn about those parents who want to send their child to St. Pius but worry about the cost of admission.

According to Lehn admission applications are up this year by about 10 percent.

Parents can learn more about St. Pius or set up a tour for a prospective student by calling Bre Easter at 636-931-7487 ext. 117.
