Our school philosophy [Link] recognizes
parents as a child's primary educator for all aspects of life. That
responsibility is such an important vocation that no teacher can ever
fully live up to its expectations. We realize how crucial it is for a
student to receive proper formation, so when a parent entrusts their
child(ren) into our institution, we gratefully accept them with the
institution, we are steadfast in our commitment to our Catholic
identity. This is why we consistently stress the importance of the
Eucharist as well as participation in the life of the Church. We
sincerely request that parents be dedicated to attendance at weekly
Sunday liturgies. We
look forward to working together with parents to ensure that their
child(ren), as well as those of the community, receive excellent
formation that will prepare them to make a positive impact in their
families, society and the Church.
We accept new students on a rolling basis. Families may consult with the principal for admission after the school year has begun. Please contact the school office for more information by calling 708-562-1466
All New Students: All new students enrolling in St. John Vianney School must be accompanied by a birth certificate, health records and a completed transfer form (if previously enrolled in another school). PreK 3 and 4, KDG or First Grade students must be 3, 4, 5 or 6 years old by September 1 of the current school year.
Kindergarten, 2nd Grade and 6th Grade: At the beginning of the school year, students entering Kindergarten, 2nd Grade or 6th Grade will be required to present records for the following exams: physical, vision and dental. Transfer Students: All students transferring into St. John Vianney School from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade will be admitted on a probationary status and must be seen by the school administrator. This procedure is necessary to properly evaluate and identify children whom we may not be able to serve.
Open Communication Policy
Whenever possible, every effort will be made to keep the lines of communication open between the faculty and staff of St. John Vianney School and parents of students. Parents are encouraged to personally contact teachers and administration to set up meeting times to discuss any matters as they arise.
