St. John Vianney Catholic School strives to develop a community grounded in Gospel values, in which students learn and practice the principles of the Roman Catholic faith, exercise the virtues, assume moral responsibility, and experience the importance of serving others. In partnership with parents and the parish, we promote social consciousness and embrace our students’ diverse ethnic, economic and academic backgrounds. We are committed to providing a safe environment that inspires our students to become competent, responsible, life-long learners.

PHILOSOPHY

St. John Vianney Catholic School is committed to the educational ministry of the Roman Catholic Church.  We strive to form a community of self-directed learners whose focus is spiritual growth, academic excellence, and service to the community.  We are dedicated to the following truths as basic to all our efforts:

  • Each child is called to grow in faith by exploring and modeling the teachings of Jesus Christ.
  • Children deserve an educational experience that promotes their spiritual, academic, and physical well-being, and validates their uniqueness.
  • The family, the most significant educator, and the school must work in partnership supporting children as they become vital members of the Catholic Church and global community.
  • Teachers facilitate academic excellence, critical thinking, and technological competence, enabling students to communicate and succeed in an evolving society.
