“Many people ask me why I left the public school system to teach here at SJV. The answer is quite simple – family. I am a product of catholic schools and I want the same experience for my children. Here at SJV every child holds an important place in our school family. They are not merely “test Scores” and “numbers”. Students here at SJV are taught from the beginning basic moral values and how to make the right choices. Academics are important, and here at SJV our academics are ‘top notch’. But, even more importantly, I know when my children leave here they will be well educated, well rounded, and hold a strong moral foundation. What more could any mother ask for? To me, SJV is family.” – Mrs. Erin Thompson
