St. Pius V School is a traditional Roman Catholic school. It was founded in 1974 by the Most Reverend Clarence Kelly to carry on the true purpose of Catholic education. As Pope Pius XI explains in his Encyclical on The Christian Education of Youth, this purpose encompasses training students in all aspects of human life, including the spiritual and physical, the moral and intellectual.
St. Pius V School offers instruction to students in first through twelfth grades. The Sisters of the Congregation of the Daughters of Mary administrate and staff the school with the assistance of dedicated lay teachers.
For the first twenty-five years St. Pius V School rented a building in Wantagh, New York. Property was then acquired in Melville. There, a house was transformed into a school and chapel. This building has provided for our students since 1998. As the building has become too small to accommodate the number of students, we now have a waiting list for registration.
