Academic Departments

Saint Viator High School offers a challenging, college preparatory program, that aims to prepare each student to enter higher education. Our curriculum, based in Catholic values, empowers students to become lifelong learners making sound choices in a changing world.

Catholic values permeate the curriculum. It includes courses designed to meet a variety of abilities with Honors classes and Advanced Placement courses that can be taken for college credit, as well as regular college preparatory courses and some remediation classes.

Students with diagnosed learning differences will find help in the Scott R. Scanlan Center, a resource room staffed with special education teachers, who help students succeed in the college preparatory environment. The center also serves as a location for students needing special testing accommodations.

Technology drives many of the classrooms. Every science labs features state-of-the-art technology, while computer labs offer students a chance to work on their assignments or pursue their study of Microsoft Office  and web design. Classrooms in every department feature interactive SMART Boards which display a computer's video output onto the whiteboard, and then act as a huge touchscreen.

Faculty members are committed to creating a learning community where all ability levels are challenged and affirmed. More than 70 percent of the professional staff hold advanced degrees, and they approach their subject matter in the context of a classic, liberal arts education.
