Welcome to St. John Vianney Catholic School, a Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth Grade coeducational Catholic school located in Rancho Cordova, California. We are a ministry of St. John Vianney Parish and are a part of the Diocese of Sacramento.
Throughout these pages, you will find information about our full-day Kindergarten program, and our excellent spiritual, academic, and enrichment opportunities available to our students. We are fully accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
Academic excellence is the hallmark of an SJV education. The students are challenged to meet the highest academic standards, built on the foundation of Christ’s love. In addition to a challenging curriculum that is aligned with Diocesan and state standards, we offer a wide enrichment program which includes art, music, technology, Italian grades K-5, Spanish 6-8th grades and athletics.
We take pride in the fact that our mission calls us to educate the whole child. In partnership with the parents, we strive to prepare our students to become loving and productive members of society. Through the curriculum and many co-curricular activities at our school, we seek to open eyes and doors to the wonderful possibilities for the future.
An educational ministry of St. John Vianney Catholic Church. St. John Vianney School places emphasis on providing a religious foundation for all students. The Catholic faith is an academic subject in its own right, and it is also integrated into all other academic disciplines and school activities.
The Religion curriculum challenges students to participate in worship, to act as part of a community, and to realize that each person deserves love and respect. Students study scripture, learn Catholic doctrine, and study and prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Students are encouraged to respond to the needs of others, to live peacefully and justly, and to care for God’s creation.
St. John Vianney is a wonderful, caring, value rich elementary school that challenges each child to perform their best on an individual level. The extra curricular activities, and the dynamic classroom engagement offer each child the opportunity to truly prosper. This school is among the best elementary schools in our county. It's the sort of place where the parents all know each other, and our kids socialize with each other outside of school. This school, in short, has created a wonderfully supportive learning environment that is unfortunately rare in this day and age.
