Villa Victoria is such a unique school. It is a college preparatory school but a very close-knit one, so the academic atmosphere is somehow both nurturing but also healthily competitive. That balance was really good for me. I was a very bright and "gifted" student but had never really been challenged until I came to Villa, so it really pushed me for the better. At the same time, some of my peers who never considered themselves as "gifted" or "honor roll" students came here and were pushed academically, and as a result got accepted too many top tier universities. For all types of students, I think this school will challenge you in the best way and take you to the next level. Socially, I was also a very quiet and shy person. Villa formed me into an amalgam of outgoing, devout, amiable, and lady-like but ultimately a headstrong female leader ready for any challenge that came that way.

If you want your daughter to be prepared for college both intellectually and spiritually, this is the place. Our older daughter went to the school and subsequently went to a university regularly ranked in the top 10 nationally, and her Villa Victoria education enabled her to succeed at that university. She has a successful career. Our younger daughter currently attends and is receiving the same education. The sisters, teachers and staff generally care about the girls. It is a great community. The girls get to participate in sports, acting, clubs, etc. There is no time for drama.

Both of my daughters attended Villa Victoria Academy from K-12 (when it was still accepting elementary students). I highly recommend this school to parents wanting a quality education for their daughter in a smaller, more personalized setting. My girls received an excellent education from the teachers and sisters of Villa. I believe the skills taught them at Villa have followed them through the college and post college educations. Both girls were accepted excellent universities and received scholarships. We continue to this day to support Villa Victoria in their efforts to education young women.

If you want your daughter to be intellectually and spiritually strong, Villa Victoria will accomplish those missions. I am a current parent but also have an older daughter who is a graduate. She went to the University of Chicago and graduated with honors. My wife and I attribute that to the preparation she received at Villa Victoria. Also, because of its size, all the girls are able to develop their leadership skills by having meaningful roles in the clubs and sports activities. Finally, because the teachers and administrators have created a caring environment, the girls learn to truly care and support each other without all the drama that can be distracting in the teenage years.

Both of my daughters go to Villa, and I can't be more pleased with their education. The school provides a challenging curriculum in a warm and welcoming environment. The students are very friendly, and it is evident in their demeanor they are taught great values such as kindness and compassion. The teachers are caring and dedicated to helping each girl reach their potential. Villa strives to make a variety of clubs, sports and activities to the student body throughout each season. We have participated in golf, tennis, basketball, running club, drama, lego club, etc. Socially, we have made a lot of wonderful friendships, both with girls and with the parents. We have looked at all of the schools in the Princeton area, but this is our first choice for quality private school education that is an amazing value for our tuition dollars.
