Pacelli High School is a private secondary school located on the north side of Stevens Point, Wisconsin in the Roman Catholic Diocese of La Crosse. The school, named in honor of Pope Pius XII, was founded in 1955 by Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (Christian Brothers).

History[edit]

Originally an all-boys high school, Pacelli merged with the all-girls Maria High School in the early 1970s to create a co-ed school offering a college-prep curriculum; the school is currently housed in the former Maria High School building. The former Pacelli building on Division Street is now home to the local YMCA. Pacelli became part of the Stevens Point Area Catholic Schools when consolidation of all the Catholic schools took place in 1986.[2]
