Bringing Children Closer to Christ

Hours of Operation: Mon - Fri 8:00am - 8:00pm


Our school philosophy 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 utmost care. 



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.

Prospective Parents

We look forward to working together with parents to ensure that their child(ren), as well as those of the community, receive excellent academic and faith formation that will prepare them to make a positive impact in their families, society and the Church. 

As an 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.

 " I love the community, culture and environment. I attended a similar school as a child and because of that, I grew up to be an adult with good morals and respect. When I first visited SJV, I felt the same spirit, warmth and the sense of family, which is the type of environment I want my daughter to grow up in and remember when it comes to her experience at school." 

- Mrs. Pagan
