Visit any successful school and you will find that parents are actively and passionately involved in its daily life. This is certainly true at Villa Academy, where creative; hardworking parents are part of every aspect of school life.
Through the Villa Academy Parent Association, parents help in the classroom and on the field, backstage for theatre productions, and in the cafeteria serving lunch daily. Parents raise thousands of dollars through Parent Association fundraisers so that grants can be awarded to the faculty for enriched learning in the classroom.
Look closely at this multi-talented parent group and you will see that Villa Academy parents share some things in common—a strong belief that parent volunteerism is the strongest model for shaping good service habits among students and a deep commitment to give generously of their professional and personal skills to make Villa Academy a strong school community.

Faculty and Staff Grants
The Villa Parent Association Faculty & Staff Grant Program provides funding for faculty and staff projects with a focus on enhancing each student’s learning experience in the classroom. All faculty and staff are eligible to apply for grants, which are awarded in late Fall.
Gift to School
The Parent Association solicits ideas for a “gift to school” from anyone in the Villa community — students, parents, guardians, alumni, trustees, faculty, or staff. It is a great opportunity for the Villa Parent Association to reward an outstanding idea with funding.
The Parent Association works hard to bring in some of the region’s most respected experts to present lectures on a range of parenting issues – from health and wellness, to academic and social issues, to discipline and development, and much more.
