The selection of Saint Viator as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as a compelling learning environment that engages students, prepares them to succeed, and utilizes current digital tools and skills.”

All Saint Viator students use iPad devices and 98 percent of school textbooks are digital. The school has two MacBook labs, where students take Mobile Apps Programming, AP Computer Science, Adobe Photoshop, Introduction to Programming, and Introduction to Entrepreneurship courses.
