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. Welcome to Villa Academy.
It is the people here that make the difference. Families and faculty who choose Villa Academy share the same essential ideals. This creates the strong feeling of community that is a tradition here. Our common expectation couples the pursuit of academic excellence with the development of the whole person. Get to know some of our families, teachers, and alumni and see for yourself.
