SAINT JOHN VIANNEY High School Academics
Located in Holmdel, New Jersey, Saint John Vianney High School serves families from Monmouth, Middlesex, and Ocean Counties and offers a challenging, well-rounded academic program, which prepares our students for college and life within a Catholic learning environment. Through our robust curriculum and range of top-notch courses, we aim to facilitate high achievement, productive citizenship, and the accomplishment of personal goals in each and every student.
Educational Departments and Curriculum
At Saint John Vianney High School, we’re committed to offering students a comprehensive education. Our curriculum covers an extensive variety of subjects for students to explore while developing life- and career-essential skills. courses include:
- Business and Technology
- Fine Arts
- Physical Education
- Social studies
- World Languages
All classes are guided by our Catholic roots and philosophy of personal growth, which push our students to improve themselves academically, socially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In this manner, we help them prepare for successful and meaningful lives – both now and after graduation.
Block Scheduling and Classroom Technology
To ensure that students grow to their maximum potential, our courses are distributed in a 4x4 block scheduling format. Each student takes four classes per day in semester-long periods that enable them to focus more closely on each subject. Between Fall and Spring, students can choose eight courses every year, offering a plethora of academic benefits that cannot be achieved with traditional scheduling.
In the classroom, we are using the very latest in education technology. Each student is issued a tablet PC that they can use to perform research, and access our extensive databases as well as the Canvas online learning system. Meanwhile, teachers take advantage of interactive whiteboards, multimedia software, 3D printers, and more to enhance the learning experience.
Advanced Placement Courses and College Credit
Saint John Vianney High School is proud to offer opportunities for students to earn college credit. This is made possible through our dual-enrollment partnerships with Brookdale Community College (BCC) and Georgian Court University (GCU), as well as advanced placement (AP) courses. Students can get a head start on their education through the following options:
- Early College Academy: Dual-enrollment students take all of their BCC classes at our school for the first three years before traveling to the BCC campus and completing their associate degree.
- Course Ahead: Through GCU, students from 9th until 12th grade have the opportunity to take college courses alongside their regular high school education.
- AP Academy: College Board offers challenging courses to prepare students for a credit-earning exam. We then help students use their scores to enhance their college acceptance rate.
