Meet St. John Vianney Catholic School

WELCOME and thank you for considering St. John Vianney Catholic School. We invite you to explore our site and learn all St. John Vianney Catholic School has to offer.

St. John Vianney Catholic School is a community united by our Catholic faith. Serving the community since 1954, St. John Vianney Catholic School remains unwavering in its commitment to serve the mind, body, and spirit, grounded in the Gospel values.

St. John Vianney Catholic School opened its doors in September of 1954. We are confident that the same commitment that opened SJVl in 1954, with Father Fred Cook and the Sisters of the Presentation, will take us well beyond the 21st century.

In 1954, the doors opened to six classrooms. 1957 gave us our first graduates!  We have graduated over 3,000 students! The initial school with six classrooms expanded in 1961 with the addition of eight classrooms and a library. In 1993 a Kindergarten and Extended Care Center was built. Beginning in 2018, Transitional Kindergarten was added to our community. We are now educating the mind, body, and spirit in TK - 8th grade.

About SJV

Mission & Philosophy

Grounded in our Catholic faith, St. John Vianney Catholic School is dedicated to teaching and living Gospel values. In partnership with families, parish, and community, we cultivate a safe, loving, and diverse environment where children build a strong academic foundation, contribute positively, and learn and grow in their Catholic faith.

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 who focus on Gospel values, experience spiritual growth, demonstrate academic excellence, and live as Christian stewards. We believe a Catholic education transforms students’ lives when:
 
  • Each child is called to grow in faith by learning about, exploring, and modeling the teachings of Jesus Christ.

  • Children are provided with an educational experience that promotes spiritual, academic, and physical well-being, and validates uniqueness.

  • Teachers facilitate academic excellence, critical thinking, and technological competence, enabling students to be responsible individuals.

  • The family and school work in partnership to support children as they become vital members of the Catholic Church in local and global communities.

  • The school integrates Catholic values and social justice into the curriculum.

We are a community who believes in providing a quality Catholic education for our children. In partnership with our parents, faculty and staff strive to support our students in a safe and welcoming space-- where school and personal life is valued and respected — where students will become empowered to effect change in their community and the world.

Since August 2020, the school has been led by our principal, Karen Suty. For more information, please call the school for a personal tour, visit us during one of our Open House dates in November, January and February of each year, or just stop by - you are always welcome.

We are proud of our rich tradition of excellence and look forward to welcoming you to visit us and get to know our school community.
