History of St. John Vianney School
On January 25, 1962, St. John Vianney Catholic School opened with grades 1-4 under the leadership of Mrs. Marie Zinell and three laywomen. On August 24, 1963, the school moved into a new phase of its development under the leadership of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. For over fifty years the school has undergone many changes to meet the spiritual and academic needs of its students in a diverse world.
St. John Vianney Catholic School has grown from a four-room school to a twenty-one-room building with an expansive campus, which we share with St. John Vianney Parish. The school has reached its maximum enrollment with seven hundred students.
