PMA strives to engage students with our deep connection to God through a set time designed to connect them to their sense of pride, virtue and purpose. We believe that the spiritual life is foundational in the culture of the school and a cornerstone of a Catholic education.  

At St. Pius X - St. Matthias Academy, grade level has two mandatory retreats, one per semester, and 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. 

All Seniors attend Karios, which is all about stepping into God’s time. The atmosphere on a Kairos retreat offers seniors the opportunity to be with God and to experience His presence through their community. Kairos is more than a retreat, it is a journey. Students get the chance to intimately reflect on their life and discern where God is calling them in the future.
