Mission of Saint Viator High School

Saint Viator High School is established by the Clerics of St. Viator and the Archdiocese of Chicago to continue the Viatorian mission in the Church “to proclaim Jesus Christ and His Gospel and to raise up communities where faith is lived, deepened and celebrated.” Saint Viator High School is, therefore, a Catholic educational community called to provide religious formation and an academic program of excellence to young men and women of the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

The school will attain these goals by providing a college preparatory curriculum integrated with Christian principles, which emphasize responsibility to society and to the Church. Saint Viator will foster a respect for the dignity and uniqueness of individuals and will challenge students to reach their maximum potential in intellectual, physical, spiritual and emotional growth.

Through the full collaboration of parents, students, faculty and staff in all dimensions of the school’s life and governance, Saint Viator High School will achieve its mission by becoming an educational and formational community of faith.
