St. Pius X High School was established in 1956. St. Pius X is a co-educational institution that serves over 1,000 students in grades nine through twelve. The campus sits on a beautiful forty-acre, college-like campus (formerly) just west of the Rio Grande on Albuquerque's west side. The school is comprised of a student body that closely mirrors the ethnic makeup of Albuquerque-55 percent Hispanic, 40 percent Anglo, four percent Native American, one percent African American and Asian. Though the vast majority of students at St. Pius are Catholic, the school is open to students of all faiths, offering a college prep education at moderate cost along with total, supportive Christian spiritual formation.
To further understanding and to promote greater awareness in the Native American community itself, in 1997, ATADA established a scholarship for Native American students of Native American art history. In that year the scholarship was used to send a student to the biennial Native American Art Studies Association conference in Berkeley, CA. This conference is a forum where scholars and students present the results of current research in traditional and contemporary Native American art, often outlining the content of major forthcoming publications.
