Junior Parent Meeting

Each year in the late fall, Pius X guidance counselors offer a night for junior students and their parents to attend an evening session to learn all about getting prepared to choose college, including financial aid information. In 2018, dangerous weather forced cancellation of the event, but below is a video of the same information. If you have questions, please email guidancehelp@piusx.net.
