Retreats offer the priceless gift for students and adults alike to sit in the quiet of the woods and listen for the whisper of God. It is a time away from the chaos and the busyness of life. It gives each soul, no matter the age, a time to pause and ask the pertinent questions about our lives and to find some answers that can help us begin again. At St. Pius X - St. Matthias Academy, retreats are mandatory. We believe that the spiritual life is foundational in the culture of the school and a cornerstone of a Catholic education.
