For more information about the school as it is today, visit the
St. John Vianney College Seminary web
site. This site is more about the High School which quietly passed away in
1975. At that point the buildings became St. Brendan High School.
In this site, I want to track the students and the faculty who were in the Seminary High School. On other
pages I have databases of both groups. I know there are a lot of blanks now,
but with your help, I can fill in the information. If someone wants to help
track the Alumni of the Junior College part of SJV, I'll offer this site to publish the
Why would someone, more than 25 years later, start a web site about his old school?
Simple. I'm wondering where everyone is today. How did we
all turn out? How much of an impact did our teachers make?
It's doubtful that we'll ever have a reunion, after all, the graduating class the last
year was three students! But maybe we can meet again in spirit over the
net. To better understand what caused the closure of SJV, here's a site that
has information about Seminary
Enrollment Trends over the years.
A related web site for St. Brendan
High School has connected me to three of my former SJV school mates. If
they found that site, maybe others from SJV will find this site. I know some
people check the Internet search engines for their own names... maybe they'll find this
site. Of course, the more people you tell about this site, the faster we'll
find each other.
The older pictures on this site come from the Disciple Year Book, 1965 to
1975. The yearbook died when the High School was closed. These
books, available today in the Maytag Library, provide insight into the history of our
school. Also available are the school Bulletins. Class schedules and the
school rules can give a good idea of what life was like for the students of the high
school at St. John Vianney.
A new page has been added for the pictures you've been sending to me.
I'm sure many of you have some old photos around that wouldn't have
made it to the Yearbook. Let's see them. To see what we have
so far, go to the Personal Photos page.
If you are from SJV, I would really like to hear from you. Drop me an
e-mail to let me know your class and where you are
today. An e-mail address and web site would help your old classmates find you.
This is a work-in-progress, so please come back every few weeks to see who
else has found us. Please think back to your years at SJV and write up your
memories. I would really like to add your thoughts to the Reflections page.
Just let the memories flow and send them to me.
Thanks for visiting this web site.
