Thank you for your interest in St. John Vianney High School! Our school is an amazing place, where young men are formed spiritually, academically and personally by dedicated, creative and faith-filled educators.

Our expert teachers know how to design the most engaging curriculum and lessons for our Vianney Griffins. They provide learning opportunities that match what our young men are passionate about while inspiring them to further explore those interests. A classroom experience at Vianney typically includes a hands-on approach, especially in any of our Math 360 classes or a bridge construction project in Engineering Design. In addition, our two-semester, college-style schedule helps our young men focus more deeply on each class, enhancing their academic success.

As Catholic educators and students, we are called to be followers of Christ. To that end, Faith formation is a critical part of each day, with multiple school-wide prayers and Communion services during each Encore period. I would also add that our guys are pretty amazing singers as a community at Mass each month!

If you are looking for a school that feels like family and cares deeply about each and every student, Vianney is the place! Our Marianist heritage guides us in creating a welcoming atmosphere with a focus on service, which we call our Family Spirit. It was one of the first things that attracted me to Vianney and I love the opportunity I have now to contribute to it. As a Vianney parent recently described it, “I love that I have found a place that will love and care for my son, just as I do!

St. John Vianney High School is dedicated to forming young men for spiritual, academic and personal excellence in the Catholic, Marianist tradition.


There are many wonderful ways that Vianney supports students to develop a heart and mind for God. Whether it is praying as a school three times a day, offering daily communion services/liturgies, and requiring our students to participate on yearly retreats, we expose our students to many opportunities to develop their faith. As a school, it is our duty to live out the gospel values of Jesus at every moment.


• Vianney is a college preparatory school which uses a teaching philosophy that incorporates the latest brain-based research on how boys best learn. The key to our proven success is our unique Two- Semester College -Style Schedule offering our students longer classes allowing teachers to utilize many teaching techniques that create student enthusiasm, intrinsic motivation and engagement for learning. Innovation, critical thinking and the latest technology help us deliver an education that develops men of character and accomplishment.
