Mission of Paul VI Catholic High School
The mission of Paul VI Catholic High School is to provide an excellent Catholic education to young men and women by affording them the means to achieve spiritual, intellectual, personal, social, and physical development according to the teachings of the Gospel and St. Francis de Sales. Paul VI Catholic High School is committed to graduating responsible, moral, service-oriented young adults who will continue to “grow in grace and wisdom."
Paul VI Catholic High School, established in 1983, is one of four secondary schools in the highly regarded Arlington Diocesan school system. From an original enrollment of 350 students, Paul VI has grown to a current capacity of 1,000 young men and women who seek the excellent and well-rounded educational experience that PVI offers.
With its challenging academic curriculum, distinguished performance and fine arts programs, outstanding sports, and wide-ranging extracurricular activities, Paul VI is recognized as one of the finest college preparatory schools in the region. Above all, its unique character fosters a dedication to the inherent and singular value of each individual. PVI seeks to inspire and challenge each student in small classroom settings and, in turn, looks to them to carry forth its mission to grow in grace and wisdom.
