The soul forms the deep foundation for every part of life, as well as being our connection to the divine. Prayer feeds the soul, and teaches it patience and joy, while generosity in the service of others draws it closer to the truth of the world. Viard College is a community knitting together souls for the benefit of everyone. A strong community, devoted to education and mindful of the profound strength and precious nature of the soul, is a force for good and a loving tribute to God.


The mind is the lens through which the light of the world is focused on the self and helps it to thrive. The opportunity for academic success, support in the development of personal values, and the fostering of social skills and culture are all integral to the health and delight of the mind. Young minds should be encouraged to develop and grow, and to nurture a lifelong love of learning.


The body is a vital support for every experience in a person’s life, so maintaining its health increases appreciation for every aspect of world. Sport, play, the development of fitness, and the exploration of movement, expand the self socially, physically, and mentally. Perhaps most importantly, the ability to respect and joyfully sustain the bodies that have been given to each one of us is an essential component of peace.


Our "Class of 2019". After 7 years with us, this group of young men and young women are prepared for their next learning steps having grown in faith, courage and self belief.


Bishop Viard College is committed to each student’s intellectual, spiritual, emotional, physical, cultural, and social development.  The whole person is encouraged to grow in Christ, and in the awareness that the possession of knowledge is a call to serve others in building the kingdom of God.
