“Human virtues acquired by education, by deliberate acts and by perseverance ever-renewed in repeated efforts are purified and elevated by divine grace. With God’s help, they forge character and give facility in the practice of the good. The virtuous man is happy to practice them.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1810)
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 School also runs grade-level retreats, designed to offer our student community time for rest, reflection, and bonding with self, others and God. The charism of the Dominican Sisters and the Saint John Vianney mission is woven into the themes of each retreat.
St. John Vianney Catholic School is proud to offer every student the Education in Virtues program as a part of the religious education curriculum. “Disciple of Christ, Education in Virtue is more than a curriculum, it’s a way of life- the means to a happy life.” The Virtues program is thoughtful and inclusive. You are invited to learn more on their website. You can find information and resources to bridge content learned in class at home as a family.
