Villa Maria Academy Reviews

I feel as though Villa Maria Academy truly stands behind their idea of "forming women of vision in spirit, mind, and body". With this being an all-girl college preparatory school, it already separated itself drastically from the other schools in the area. I could not imagine myself being so happy at any other school, and I will cherish what Villa has taught me, along with the countless memories for the rest of my life. I recommend Villa to any girl in the area, and I promise you will not be disappointed with the true bond of the sisterhood.

Villa was a great school to attend. I wouldn't change my decision to go there for the world. The culture and overall atmosphere was amazing! It also prepared me so well for college. The only thing that I wish was better was the music department, as it was very small and only focused on voice and piano.
My experience at Villa Maria Academy has been exceptional. I had never planned to attend Villa. My mind was always set on a different school, that was until I shadowed it at the end of my eighth grade year. Shadowing the school completely changed my mind. I saw the sense of community, the want from students and teacher to better themselves and others. By choosing this school, I have been able to be exposed to many different things, whether that be in the classroom or on the court representing my school. Throughout my years, the faculty, staff, and students have taught me multiple things, such as, the importance of my education and has helped me establish who I am. There is nothing that needs to change about this school, it is a great private school that encourages women to be leaders in the classroom and on the court, field, or track.
