Student Testimonials

“From my very first days at Villa, I have been granted many opportunities, and have become involved with Student Council, Student Integrity Committee, Respect Life Club, the Cross Country team, and the Lacrosse PIAA State Champion Team! My teachers, coaches and peers are helping me to become the best version of myself. Academically, athletically, socially, and spiritually, Villa not only pushes its students to improve, but it also provides them with the ability to do so.”

“I have been fortunate to represent Villa on the 2017 State Championship Field Hockey team and as a member of the USA U17 National Team. These experiences allow me to extend the IHM charism across the country and globe as I competed in international tournaments. My experiences at Villa have prepared me to continue my studies and field hockey at Duke University.”

“I am a proud member of Villa Maria’s exceptional music program. I continue to grow musically, understanding the importance of playing a piece emotionally and connecting with the audience. A highlight of my freshman year was playing with the All-Catholic Orchestra at the Kimmel Center.”

“Last June, 12 students and 2 teachers embarked on a trip to Tohatchi, New Mexico, where we spruced up St. Mary’s Mission and had the incredible opportunity to listen and learn from the gracious Navajo people. The experience expanded my understanding of social justice and gave me an appreciation of how I can use my gifts to help others.”

“The Scholars Program is a great opportunity to engage with my fellow scholars in an advanced and special environment where we are able to bond throughout the year while studying global issues. Our research paper and documentary on women’s education in the Middle East raised awareness and ignited a passion in us to find ways to solve these problems. I am looking forward to everything this year will bring.”
