WE ARE PREPARED
Here is a partial list of where Villa alumni have continued their education at the collegiate level.
Villa Academy is a place where children learn to be not only scholars, but individuals of character. Where the development of the heart goes hand in hand with the development of the mind; where the rigors of learning are rewarded by the joys of mastery; where the challenges of growing are rewarded by the satisfaction of becoming; and where, in time, each child develops the confidence and enthusiasm to go as far in the world as their dreams will take them.
