About

Catholic High School

Our faith guides us. Our curiosity drives us. Our community bonds us.
Every day at Paul VI Catholic High School, transformation happens.

    • A lesson lights a spark that becomes a student’s lifelong passion.
     
    • A service project turns into an enduring commitment to serving others.
     
    • A role on a championship team inspires leadership off the field or court.
     
    • A moment in prayer leads to a lasting journey of faith.
     
With our patron St. Francis de Sales as example, we live out our pledge to grow in grace and wisdom by developing the habits of lifelong learners and spiritual seekers. This is not only true for our students—our faculty teach these traits by example.
 
A PVI education inspires both the head and heart to grow in amazing ways.
