Capodanno High School at Walk For Life Rally in Washington D.C.


Joe Skillman Principal
Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Father Vincent Capodanno High School. Our mission is to develop students to become resilient problem solvers who have the clarity and the courage to discover God's unique calling for each of their lives. The foundation of our school is our Catholic faith. It provides the driving force for what we do and how we do it. I hope that you envision the incredible experiences, relationships, and learning opportunities that your student would receive if they joined FVCHS. 

The legacy of Father Capodanno is one of bravery and self-sacrifice. He was truly a man who lived the message and example of Christ our Lord. We seek to live out his legacy and example every day to nurture students to live their lives outwardly for others. We look forward to seeing you next year and know that FVCHS can help your student to grow into the man or woman God has designed them to be. 

"No greater love than this; to lay down one's life for one's friends."
