St. Pius X School Principal

The Diocese of San Diego is seeking a qualified, experienced and transformational educational leader who is deeply committed to furthering the development of the faith life and academic excellence of a single-classroom preschool through 8th grade parish school located in Chula Vista, California. 

Vision Statement:

Students at St. Pius X School learn in a Christ-centered educational environment.  Their education and formation is student-centered to encompass spiritual, academic, psychological, social, cultural and physical growth.  This is the top priority of the administration, faculty, staff, and parents/ guardians.
Students with their various cultural backgrounds learn to know, love, and serve God and to see themselves and others as a special persons created in God's image, loved and cherished by God, and therefore, to view themselves as unique individuals of great dignity and worth.

Our students develop a desire for prayer, reflection, and reverence for all creation, and they take advantage of provided opportunities to share the Good News, to build Christian community and to be of service to others.

St. Pius X students learn to bear witness to Christ and to His values through their interactions with others. Students at St. Pius X School learn that God loves everyone and that a loving response to God leads to a more fulfilling life.  They work to live out the parish motto of our patron, Pope St. Pius X, to "restore all things in Christ."

Students work to achieve mastery in basic skills.  They do so using a variety of materials and techniques which incorporate different learning styles and multiple intelligences to develop effective skills in creative and critical thinking, in decision-making, in problem solving, and in making moral choices.  Students build on their learning to prepare themselves for higher education and their future roles as Catholic/ Christian members of an ever- changing world, under the direction of teachers and staff in cooperation with parents.

Mindful of the lifelong learning process, our students become life learners who integrate Catholic truths and values into their daily lives, as they work for justice and peace as vibrant members of family, school, Church, and global communities.

The administration, faculty, and staff at St. Pius X School, in partnership with the parents who are the primary educators of their children, are committed to assisting students in developing their full potential.
