Driven by a mission that seeks to develop the whole person – spiritually, intellectually, physically, and emotionally

Our students embrace the academic, spiritual and co-curricular challenges that are placed before them as they grow into lifelong learners capable of making sound choices in a changing world. A Viatorian education helps students get into the colleges that are best for them, from the most selective universities to schools that are tailor-made for their specific needs. Our test scores, while not the final measure of a school’s success, show how well we prepare our students for college. Our AP program, in which our students can earn college credit while still in high school, is among the best in the country.

More important than test scores is the passion and growth students experience in their courses. The knowledge and skills they develop lead to spiritual growth, wisdom, understanding and action. Even before they graduate, our students are agents of change, seeking to improve their world and celebrating their Catholic identity.
