St. Pius X High School was founded by the Dominican Sisters of Houston in 1956. The school was named in honor of Pope Pius X, who was canonized by the Roman Catholic Church in 1954. Pope Pius X was born Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto, and his family name was taken as the name of the school's official yearbook, Del Sarto. Pope Pius X's nickname, "Beppo," was also chosen as the name of the school's panther mascot.
