The Schwabe Family - David, Lisa, Ally ‘19, Colton ‘23, Sarah ‘23, Kenzie ‘25

Over the past nine years, we have been fortunate to have all four of our children attend Saint Viator High School. Throughout their time here, our family has been deeply involved in the arts, as music and song have filled our home every day. The Saint Viator choirs, musicals, plays, and the support of the Patron of the Arts have truly made our family’s experience complete.
