History

Pius X High School

Pius X High School (Pius X) was a co-educational, private, four year (grade levels 9-12) high school located at 7851 Gardendale Street, in the city of Downey, California. The school was founded in 1954, and named for Pope Pius X.[citation needed]

From 1968 to 1975, Pius X entered into a concept of modern teaching, the "Model School Project." Pius employed an educational model called "non-gradedness," which places a student in a class where his or her present achievement is the deciding factor. Emphasis is put on progress and learning by the individual, and not a group of thirty or forty students.[citation needed]

In March 1995, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced a school realignment transforming Pius X, a co-ed school, into a co-institutional high school with all-girl St. Matthias High School.[citation needed] The Pius X program was phased out over a three-year period.[citation needed]

St. Matthias High School

St. Matthias was established in 1960.[2] Its original location was at Stafford Avenue and Belgrade Street in Huntington Park.

St. Matthias High School was recognized as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the United States Department of Education in May 2002 and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Western Catholic Education Association.

Transition

In 2010, with St. Matthias enrollment declining and nearby Serra High School growing over the same three-year period, the Archdiocese formed a collaborative model between the two schools.[citation needed] In 2011, the St. Matthias Advisory Board and the Archdiocese asked Loyola Marymount University's ("LMU") Center for Catholic Education to conduct a detailed study on options for St. Matthias. The Center for Catholic Education study looked at how the school was achieving their Catholic education mission. It was decided to convert the facility back a co-ed school. On July 1, 2013, the school changed the name to St. Pius X - St. Matthias Academy.[citation needed]
