In 1872, the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Immaculata, PA, made a promise…a promise to provide a dynamic spiritual, intellectual and social environment that would challenge and empower young women to live by their faith, develop their intellectual gifts, enhance and broaden their skills, and use their talents to benefit society. That promise took shape in the establishment of Villa Maria Academy.
We at Villa Maria understand the importance of a promise. We are committed to ensuring that future generations have access to the educational environment that has inspired so many women to rely on their intellect, faith, creativity and compassion to support their personal convictions and place a priority on justice and improvement.
As an independent, congregational high school, Villa Maria has kept its promise for more than 140 years. We invite you to embrace the Villa Maria promise and become a member of the next generation of Villa Maria students to challenge yourself to achieve more than you ever thought possible.
