From Villa Academy

At Villa, we take learning “Beyond the Desk.” Our spectacular campus is a 31-acre learning lab that extends beyond the four walls of the classroom as students connect to the natural world for hands-on exploration.“Beyond the Desk” is also a metaphor for how we continually grow and innovate in offering an extraordinary learning experience for our students. We set the academic bar high and believe that children learn best when they are challenged, engaged, and inspired. Our students explore real-world issues with a social justice lens, think critically, and develop skills for their future academic journeys and beyond. Small class sizes and highly collaborative faculty ensure that students are known as individuals: their learning styles, their social emotional growth, and in the spiritual focus that deepens their compassion and character.

Forest School at Villa Academy

Villa's preschool students participate each week in Forest School, an in-depth nature experience for our youngest students. Part of our 31 acre campus, the Villa Forest is intentionally underdeveloped, and rich with old growth trees, native plants, and the habitat niches of mammals, insects and birds. It’s an amazing environment for exciting exploration and learning not found anywhere else.

    Villa continues to be a wonderful fit for our family of three kids! Ever since our kids all started at Villa in preschool, they have loved everything about going to school and look forward to the years ahead. They come home excitedly telling of outdoor experiences at the waterfront, garden, and Douglas fir grove, sightings of their siblings in the halls, and stories of their friends and classmates, many of which they have known since they were three years old. With small class sizes, homeroom teachers personally get to know each child and this bond helps facilitate comfort, learning, and problem solving when needed. All of my kids even received personal postcards and care packages from their teachers during the spring Covid shutdown, which was amazing!

    We love Villa! Our children have thrived. The Villa preschool is really special. They have a Forest School program that is really unique. For example for 3-4 year olds they spend most of Mondays and Fridays outdoors exploring the 30 acres of mostly untouched forest. They learn about the seasons, bird migration, and animal burrows. As the grades progress the children continue to spend a signicamt amount of time in nature. Children at Villa are challenged academically and are nurtured to develop social and emotional skills. It is especially impressive to interact with the middle schoolers. They are so polite and kind to the younger kids. It is evident that the kids and families are invested in making Villa a special community. You should definitely check it out!
    I loved it and there were so many memorable experiences. Also, the food was delicious. It was quite easy to make friends and the teachers are very considerate. There are also a lot of houses close to the school and it is a very nice area to live in.
