My son graduated from Villa after attending from grade 1-12. He experienced an incredible academic environment that challenged him to be the best and inspired him to want to learn more. He was coached to excel and taught to help others. Upon graduation, he was awarded both athletic and academic scholarships to 100% cover the cost of his undergraduate and master's degrees.

Villa Madonna Academy is phenomenal. I have children in elementary school and junior high, and VMA has become an extended family for all of us. The faculty and administration are brilliant, hardworking and incredibly gifted as teachers and role-models. My children absolutely love the learning environment, the extracurricular activities, and their teachers and friends. And I love the values as much as the education.
