The school is amazing, and I made new friendships that I would never forget.

Our experience at Villa has been outstanding. We came in preschool and never left. Our kids have benefited from teachers highly attuned to their academic needs; both challenging them and supporting them. As parents, we have appreciated the individual attention to our kids and responsiveness to our questions. I think it's important to visit Villa in order to appreciate the joy that bubbles from the kids, the commitment of the faculty, and the amazing campus. The transition to high school is a big step for most kids. The strength of Villa's program was further proven to us as our oldest began high school this past fall. He did not merely feel well prepared, he felt confident and successful.
