Dean of Students
Maria Kepler joined the St. Pius X community in 2009 as a Latin and English teacher. In her years here, she has mentored students and teachers, served on numerous committees, and led the World Languages Department as Chair. She has also been awarded STAR teacher twice, as well as both Teacher of Excellence and Teacher of the Year. A graduate of Creighton University's program in Catholic School Leadership, Maria is excited to join the leadership team and strengthen our community.  When she is not here, she's singing at church and hiking Georgia trails with her husband Brendan and their son Cameron.


Dean of Academics
Jason Eaglen is the new Dean of Academics.  Jason has been at St. Pius X since 2008, when he was hired as a Theology teacher.  Since day one Jason has been a firm believer in the school’s mission; consequently, he has served in numerous capacities throughout the school community, including acting as the Theology Department Chair from 2009-2021 and coaching with the Swim & Dive, Track & Field, and Fastpitch Softball teams, as well as working closely with the Strength and Conditioning program.  Prior to beginning his time at St. Pius X, Jason taught courses covering Western Religions for two years at the University of Georgia.  He has a Master of Arts in Religious Studies from the University of Georgia and was certified by Creighton University in their Catholic School Leadership program of study.  Jason is married to Amy Eaglen, Theology Teacher at Marist School, and is the proud father of four children, all of whom have attended St. Pius X since 2010.
