Your Decision Matters

The high school years are full of decisions. It all begins with choosing the right school.
Paul VI Catholic High School is more than just an academic home to our students. We are a vibrant community where every student and family instantly feels a sense of belonging, and every student is treated with the same dignity and respect.
 
Our devoted faculty and staff are committed to providing your child with a superior 21st century education in a traditional Catholic environment. We follow the words of our patron St. Francis de Sales as we encourage every student to “do ordinary things extraordinarily well.”

Some Markers of Our Success:

  • PVI was recognized by the Cardinal Newman Society as one of the top 50 Catholic High Schools for the past three years based on overall excellence in Catholic identity, academic excellence and civic education.  
  • PVI holds a virtually 100% college acceptance rate when compared to like students in other public and private schools in Virginia.
  • Approximately $20 million in scholarships were offered to the Class of 2018
  • Students find the right-fit college and succeed academically at the nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities.
  • Panthers have served more than 21,000 hours in our local community.
  • Our students participate in life-changing global and domestic mission trips to the Dominican Republic, St. Lucia, Belize, Appalachia, and Steubenville, Ohio
  • PVI students have opportunities for hands-on learning and cultural enrichment through faculty-led trips to China, Italy, and Spain, as well as spiritual inspiration through pilgrimages to Italy, Ireland, and France.

The best way to get to know our extraordinary community is to see it for yourself. Please give us a call to arrange a private tour--or to have us host your student as a Panther for a Day. We’d love for you to witness firsthand the excitement and enthusiasm of both our teachers and students.
