Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to St. John Vianney School!

We are blessed with a K3-8 Catholic School vibrant in faith, passionately focused on being excellent for God, and thriving within a vibrant, faith filled parish community!

Faith – We start, continue, and end each day in prayer, celebrating our common faith and seeking to understand our calling within God’s plan for each of his children. Faith begins with grace. We call upon that grace frequently, while immersed in our studies and work. Our Catholic identity sets us apart as we nurture within our children the kind of excellence of faith and life that will please God and guide them to truly fulfilling and impactful lives.

Excellence – God’s call to excellence is our highest calling – to be like Him – seeking knowledge, skill, and living our faith in virtue. Our children are surrounded with expert, caring staff who model the kind of discipline of mind and heart that inspires habits of excellence. We offer rigorous learning opportunities with the whole child in mind. An emphasis on collaborative problem solving, project based learning, and technology integration ensures our students are preparing for a rapidly changing 21st century world. Children at SJV gain a strong academic background in all subject areas, as well as a rich diversity of extra-curricular experiences in athletics, art, music, and theater.

Community – We thrive with support from and interaction with the vibrant faith community of St John Vianney Parish, the broader Brookfield and Milwaukee communities, and the overall world in which we live. Daily you will witness the caring collaboration between children, staff, and parents. So many give generously of their time, surrounding SJV children with love and inspiration. We also enjoy a lively partnership with our sister school and our parish mission in Peru; these are life-shaping experiences of service and community support.

St. John Vianney is an exciting and faith filled school inspired by the gospel message of Christ. Come and visit us! Experience a school with positivity, compassion, and high standards for academics and faith in action.
