The academic program at St. John Vianney Catholic School places a strong emphasis on every aspect of student growth and development in excellence, while adhering to state requirements. Suitable class sizes and exceptional, qualified teachers allow us to offer a comfortable and inclusive educational environment, while ensuring each student receives the individualized attention and support they need.
Pre K & VPK
St. John Vianney Catholic School offers the only Nationally Accredited Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program on the beaches. We are parish school licensed by the Pinellas
County License Board and meet strict standards for health and safety. Full day and three hour programs are available for Pre-Kindergarten.
Children entering the Pre-K program are eligible through the Early Learning Coalition of Florida to receive 3 hours of free education. Information may be found here.
The goal for the elementary grades is to build on skills and concepts introduced in Early Childhood. As we continue to encourage positive social and emotional development with Catholic faith values, our emphasis moves toward independent work study skills.
IB Middle Years Programme
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme is designed for students aged 11 to 16. This period, encompassing early puberty and mid-adolescence, is a particularly critical phase of personal and intellectual development and requires a programme that helps students participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.

Specials & Extracurriculars
We focus on the development of student fitness, physical and social skills to help create a positive self image for each student. This approach is adjusted at each level to balance a student projected progress and abilities. The Presidential Fitness Program is incorporated each year to reward and recognize students who meet a healthy level of fitness in this program.
The Middle School Physical education curriculum is a combination of sports skills, team sports, physical fitness programs, health curriculum and other activities designed to meet the objectives and challenges presented to our middle school students.
