Deeply rooted in our Catholic identity, we strive to do everything well so that through us Jesus may be adored and loved. Guided by the Viatorian mission, all members of the Saint Viator family discern who God wants them to be, discover what the world needs, and transform the communities they encounter through empathy, action, and inclusion. Saint Viator High School is recognized as an exceptional institution where tradition and innovation meet.


Catholic Identity
Fueled by the Gospel and nourished by the Eucharist, Saint Viator is ignited to express our Catholic, Viatorian faith through study, prayer, and transformative action. Intellectually, we learn about our faith; communally, we gather around the altar; individually, we are inspired to help others through servant leadership; collectively we include and embrace people of all backgrounds.

Viatorian Spirituality
Saint Viator commits to the highest standards in integrity, effort, and behavior to best serve students, families, and society. Through a focus on excellence, dignity, diligence, and equity, we proclaim Jesus Christ and His Gospel and raise up communities where faith is lived, deepened, and celebrated.

Community and Learning
The Saint Viator High School family cultivates an environment of kindness and belonging for all to feel welcomed, included, respected, and involved. We foster success in life and prepare students to excel in college through academic rigor, engaging the intellect, creative collaboration, respect of individuals, embracing diversity and acceptance, and responsibility to oneself and others.

Educating the Whole Person
Saint Viator forms students who are faith-filled, intellectually inspired, ready to serve, and fully engaged in the Viatorian mission. We work to deepen our relationship with Christ, identify our given strengths, and purposefully meet the greatest needs of a diverse society.
Located in Arlington Heights, IL, Saint Viator High School is a private, co-ed, Catholic school for grades 9-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
