Curriculum

The curriculum at St. John Vianney is deeply rooted in teaching the basic skills necessary for every student to learn what is presented, and also to develop the skills necessary to continue learning outside of the classroom and beyond eighth grade. The curriculum is integrated between subjects and between grades so that the learning process is seamless, and students easily transition to the next subject and next grade. The curriculum follows the California Common Core State Standards. Please visit this link for more information. http://www.corestandards.org

Students receive grade appropriate instruction in Religion, Reading, English, Grammar, Writing, Math, Social Studies, Foreign Language, Science, Physical Education and Music. All students spend time in the computer lab learning technology skills. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum to ensure success for all students of the 21st century.

Physical Education is part of St. John Vianney’s required curriculum. This program is under the direction of a full-time P.E. teacher who is dedicated to providing active and challenging classes for each grade level. Students participate in gross motor movement, learn the rules of organized playground and court games, and are encouraged to be physically active in their lives. Each year the students complete in the Presidential Physical Fitness Test.

In addition to rigorous studies, other activities include Yearbook, Student Council, the Accelerated Reading Program and a variety of academic competitions throughout the year.

Fine Arts

The educational experience at St. John Vianney School does not end with basic academics. The creative spirit in the students is fostered through a variety of ways to introduce the Fine Arts to our students:

  • Choir
  • Music
  • Art Docent Program

Through these programs, many students discover talents and interests that would otherwise go unexplored.
