Academic Excellence

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

Saint Viator High School is committed to:

  • A rigorous educational program in each discipline, using a liberal arts approach
  • Creating an environment that fosters the growth of the individual, challenging students to develop their relationship with God
  • Forming strong relationships among students and faculty, the hallmark of Viatorian education

Educating each student

  • Saint Viator admits students of all ability levels, from students with mild learning disabilities to exceptional learners.
  • Students with diagnosed learning differences will find help in the Scott R. Scanlan Learning Center, a resource room staffed with special education teachers who help students succeed in the college preparatory environment.
  • The Querbes Scholars Program allows highly motivated students of exceptional academic promise and imbued with a faith-based concern for others less talented and less favored to enrich their years at Saint Viator High School through activities that foster personal growth, intellectual independence, and faith enrichment.
  • Honors courses are for students with a high aptitude in the subject who are willing to meet the challenge demanded by higher-level thinking skills. These courses move at a faster pace and students do more independent work, including coursework over the summer.
  • The Reverend Mark R. Francis, C.S.V. International Program provides a supportive environment that focuses on a student's needs and enables him or her to develop the cultural understanding and performance skills necessary to function appropriately and successfully in both academic and social situations.
