DOWNEY – One year after becoming a co-ed high school, St. Pius X – St. Matthias Academy was forced to establish a waitlist after reaching a record number in the amount of applications, admitted and registered students for the 2014-2015 school year. A record 200 applications were received and 191 students have been accepted for the upcoming school year.
A total of 307 students are registered in grades 9-12, and as a result, for the first time in school history St. Pius X – St. Matthias Academy has opened a waitlist for admission.
Thirteen incoming freshmen qualified for the Onwards Scholars Program scholarship, a scholarship offered only at St. Pius X – St. Matthias Academy that pays 75% of a student’s tuition for four years.
Enrollment numbers are not the only thing increasing at St. Pius X – St. Matthias Academy for this upcoming school year: five new teachers were hired this year to teach Spanish, Chemistry, Geometry, and Theology classes.
The new school year started Aug. 13.
