The academic program at St. John Vianney High School has placed among the top 50 Catholic high schools nationally, earning an "Honor Roll" ranking based on a rigorous evaluation by the Cardinal Newman Society.
There are 1,205 Catholic high schools in the United States. Vianney was designated as a school whose academic program is among the top 50 of these.
The Top 50 Catholic High Schools are recognized for overall excellence in all three Honor Roll categories. Other schools, like Vianney, receive special recognition in a particular category, placing in the top 50 in that individual classification.
The Catholic High School Honor Roll was created in 2004 to help parents evaluate the quality of Catholic high schools. It also serves to inspire these schools to pursue ever-higher levels of excellence through constructive competition.
Other areas examined as part of the evaluation include Catholic identity and civic education. Click here to learn more about the program.

There are no study halls, and Vianney students graduate with 32 credits, among the highest in the Midwest.
Vianney welcomes students of all faiths and a range of academic abilities.
