Vianney in Top 5% of Catholic High Schools Nationally

National School of EcxellenceSt. John Vianney High School has been recognized by the Cardinal Newman Society on this year's Catholic School Honor Roll as a 2014 School of Excellence.
Since 2004, the Honor Roll has recognized excellence in the areas of Catholic identity, Academic Excellence and Civic Education at Catholic high schools across the United States.
“It is an honor to receive this recognition as one of the top Catholic high schools in the country,’ said Dr. Tim Dilg, Principal of St. John Vianney High School. “The real reward however is not the national ranking, it’s the confirmation that Vianney is doing an exceptional job of preparing all students for spiritual & academic success.”
“This achievement validates the tremendous work of our school community and will serve as extra motivation to continue to build a school of excellence for many years to come,” he added.
This year 71 schools received the honor of being named as a School of Excellence, and an additional nine received the distinction of Honorable Mention. This is less than five percent of the Catholic high schools in the United States.

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 for the 2012-2013 school year.

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 by placing in the top 50 in that individual classification.

Vianney placed among the top 50 schools in the Academic Category.
