Sending our children to St. Ursula Villa was one of the best decisions that we have ever made for our children. All of our children received an exceptional education as well as wonderful religious and moral values. Our children have been blessed to have received acceptances at wonderful colleges all over the country including University of Michigan, Notre Dame and Harvard. As one child is preparing to graduate from Law School this year, and another child is preparing to enter Medical School in the fall, we give a great deal of credit for their success to St. Ursula Villa and how it prepared our children for their future education.

St Ursula Villa nurtures each student as an individual with emphasis on academic excellence, faith, and community. The teachers are dedicated to helping each student be successful in the classroom and beyond. They have inspired my son to expand his knowledge, to help others through community service opportunities, and to become a more faith filled individual.

We've part of the Villa family for the past 4 years and are getting ready for our youngest to finally start his journey. The teachers and administrators are top notch and so loving. The community is something very special and we love being part of such an enriching and caring school.

One of the Villa's key assets is its faculty and staff. The teachers nuture each student as an individual. They personally get to know each child, their learning styles, interests, strengths and challenges. The rigorous academic program is balanced with an emphasis on faith and community.

St. Ursula Villa provided the academic, spiritual and social foundation that helped my daughters achieve success in high school and college. At the Villa they learned how to study effectively, to strive for excellence, to support one-another with kindness and respect, and to be stewards of their community. The Villa provided them with wonderful memories that they will enjoy for a lifetime.

Top-notch education, high-standards with a "whole" child approach, small class size--all three of my children thrive and they have very different strengths and challenges. Plus the Villa community is so strong, a huge benefit for our family.
