The academic program is enhanced through:

  • Curricular experiences that are equal parts collaborative, creative, global in scope, interdisciplinary, and technologically appropriate.
  • Daily scheduling, learning spaces, and technology that support meaningful learning at higher levels of retention and application.
  • A professional learning community of faculty that provides the time and resources for teachers to grow in their knowledge of innovative, research-based pedagogy.
  • An expectation that each Villa Maria Academy student does not operate in a world of one, but is one in the world through her commitment to faith and service.

Propelled by its mission of educating young women to be critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, and collaborative citizens with strong communication skills, Villa Maria's Academic Catalog is arranged to equip the student with the competence and skills necessary to support that mission and to continue her learning through life.  

Authentic experiences and special programs lead to next-level learning.

Villa Maria students are exposed to authentic experiences, like the Senior Capstone Project, that define the broadest application of their learning and research skills. These academic requirements are enhanced by annual retreats, service learning, and global travel opportunities, which are woven organically throughout the curriculum.

  • The Scholars Diploma curricular track challenges students with academic potential through the Scholars Seminar, laying the foundation for independent research in their high school experience.
  • An articulation with Immaculata University allows eligible students to take Dual Enrollment coursework on-site at Villa Maria and receive college credit for a nominal fee. The Counseling and College Counseling Departments offer strategic guidance throughout the student’s four year journey to assist in developing her potential so that her post-secondary outcomes are met.

Parent partnerships mean even greater student support.

Partnership with our parent stakeholders is considered vital to the success of our students. Parent education opportunities are offered throughout the year with noted researchers and authors. Participation in these programs enables families to better support their daughters in meeting the goal of a Villa Maria Academy High School education, which is to become a confident, faith-filled, college-ready, and independent woman.Villa Maria's coursework at every level of instruction challenges our students to think and work both independently and collaboratively.
