Education[edit]

St. Viator School's education program starts in pre-kindergarten, with half day classes. By Kindergarten students attend full-day classes. This continues to eighth grade. In Kindergarten they start on their basic education, which includes religion classes focusing on Catholicism.

By first grade a basic program is instituted that continues to fourth grade.

By the fifth grade, the students change classes for either Science or Social Studies. Lab sciences are gradually introduced. The students also participate in D.A.R.E., a program which educates them about the effects of drugs, alcohol, and smoking. The fifth grade classes place an emphasis on preparing the students for junior-high.

In junior-high, the students receive their first lockers and follow a rotating schedule to accommodate the student/faculty ratio, which is low. Classes include English, spelling, Spanish, science, computer science, religion, social studies, reading, math, physical education, and conflict resolution/band/T.R.I.B.E/study skills. All subjects are taught every day with the exception of computer science, physical education, and conflict resolution/band/tribe/study skills.

A majority of students attend Bishop Gorman High School after graduation.
