Principal's Message

Welcome to St. John the Evangelist/St. Pius X Catholic School - a preschool through eighth grade school that serves families in the Southwest and Central areas of Rochester, Minnesota. Our unique school, featuring two campuses, began operating as one school at two separate campuses in the fall of 2006. Combined, our campuses serve over 300 students.

We believe the community of St. John the Evangelist/St. Pius X School provides a safe, academic, Christ-centered environment that models the life of Christ through faith, kindness, and respect for all. Our school is a warm, welcoming place where students love to learn and learn to love others as Christ does.

We believe that each person is a child of God, deserving of respect. We convey Christ’s love in a school that prepares all students spiritually, emotionally, academically, and socially. Our churches, families, and schools combine as one supportive community.

Our Christ-like environment promotes rigorous educational opportunities, physical wellness and mental support for all. Our positive atmosphere is encouraged through our words and our actions.

We invite you to visit our school to learn more about joining the St. John the Evangelist/St. Pius X School community. We want to be sure that your experience with us is the right choice for you and your family. Come join us as we see Christ in others and work to be Christ for others. Please don't hesitate to contact me to learn more about our school and to arrange a tour.

God Bless,
