Villa Maria Academy High School offers a dynamic spiritual, intellectual, and social environment that challenges and empowers young women to live by their faith, develop their intellectual gifts, enhance and broaden their skills, and use their talents to benefit society. Guided by the IHM charism — a spirit of fidelity, creative hope, and love — Villa Maria creates an environment that empowers girls and supports their efforts to become self-confident students who contribute to the betterment of society.

Faculty and staff weave the charism of the IHM Sisters into every aspect of a Villa Maria education. Faith is a part of every day, beginning with daily morning prayers and continuing throughout the day in religious instruction, service organizations and opportunities, liturgies, retreats, and communion services.
