Loudoun County Campus

Our 21st century campus will glorify our centuries-old faith while educating the next generation.
When Paul VI opened its doors, it was a new school in an old building. More than 37 years later, we are now among the Top 50 Catholic high schools in the nation.
Groundbreaking occurred on February 16, 2018 for our new 68-acre campus in Loudoun County (Chantilly). Read more about the Groundbreaking here and view event photos here.

Our state-of-the-art facilities will ensure that we continue to offer the very best college preparatory Catholic education for generations to come. Read more about what the new campus will offer here.

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Where will the new campus be located in Loudoun County?

    The 68-acre property is located at 42341 Braddock Road in Chantilly, Virginia, between Riding Center Drive and Donerails Chase Drive in the South Riding area. 
  • When will the new campus open?

    The new campus will open in August 2020. 
  • Will transportation be provided for students who are affected by the move?

    Paul VI Catholic High School is committed to offering bus transportation for students traveling to and from the new campus. Currently, roundtrip service is offered to Fairfax from Ashburn, Gainesville, and South Riding. Once we have permanently moved to the new campus, bus service will be offered from several areas in Fairfax County, based on the needs and the student population at the time. 
  • Is it anticipated that the majority of the current administration, faculty, and staff will make the move to the new location?

    Members of the faculty and staff have responded favorably to the relocation news. Sharing in the belief that this relocation provides an extraordinary opportunity for the entire PVI community to grow in every aspect, the continuity of faculty and staff will help maintain our growth in "grace and wisdom."
  • Will the intimate size of classes remain the same?

    Given our commitment to continue to provide our students with a high-level college preparatory education, the class sizes will remain the
    same. The building and facilities will be substantially larger to allow for additional classrooms, labs, and a setting for superior 21st century learning environment.
  • How will the athletic programs, Fine Arts, and student clubs be affected?

    The enhanced athletic facilities will allow a larger variety of sports to be offered to our students and provide the convenience and safety afforded by on-campus practices. There will be a state-of-the-art performing arts center integrating art, music, and drama with current technological expectations of a 21st-century arts center. The wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities which help round out the PVI experience will certainly continue -- in facilities that are much better suited to them.
  • Will the curriculum be affected?

    We anticipate that PVI will continue to maintain its position as one of the Top 50 Catholic High Schools in the United States by continually reviewing and updating the rigorous academic programs to meet the needs of the 21st century learner. Meeting the needs of our student population in the accomplishment of the PVI mission will remain of the highest importance to the school’s administration and faculty. We will continue our dedication to being a model for providing a Catholic education for students with intellectual disabilities and learning differences. These programs contribute to the special character of PVI. The new facilities will ensure that our students benefit from the latest technological advances as part of their high school experience.
  • How can I continue to follow the journey of PVI to Loudoun County?
