Phase I

Pius XI High School is among the largest non-public high schools in Wisconsin with an enrollment of 800 students. Seventy years after it first opened the school has its own chapel which became the catalyst for a new entrance, media / learning center and science laboratories.

Completed in November, 2004, the new field house was designed to serve the fitness and wellness needs of all Pius students. The field house provides practice and competition space for 23 interscholastic sports.

The newly opened Father Robert V. Carney Performing Arts Center is a 500 seat state of the art theater converted from the former gymnasium. The new performance space with an orchestra pit features a premium LARES sound system. The lobby has two art galleries showcasing the highest quality PIUS student work.
