Dear friends,

Welcome to Villa's Lower School Program for Kindergarten through fifth grade students. These are the years when children harness their imaginations and natural curiosity to learn how to synthesize and share what they are learning.

We encourage a love of learning.
Small classes allow our teachers to continually assess the needs of each student and create dynamic and engaging lessons. Our students develop a love of learning and build a strong foundation in reading, writing, and math skills.

We encourage critical thinking.
Our students are challenged to build their knowledge of the world around them, developing critical thinking skills with a cross-disciplinary approach that enriches learning.

We encourage a well-rounded education.
Visual arts, music, books, world languages, technology, sports and fitness come alive as our specialist teachers work in concert with homeroom teachers. Social/emotional skills are practiced throughout the curriculum.

We encourage community.
Students in Kindergarten through grade 5 interact regularly with our preschool and middle school students during schoolwide events, clubs and sports, and through our Buddy Program. Our school community is inclusive; all are welcome here. While Catholic, Villa is not connected to a parish.

Please take a few moments to find out more about our elementary level programs by exploring our website or contacting our Admissions staff. Our community is excited to meet you and your family!

Villa Academy's founder, St. Frances Cabrini, is our inspiration. Known as America's first "Citizen Saint" and the "Universal Patroness of Immigrants", she established schools, orphanages, and hospitals in the U.S. during her ministry to those new to our shores.

A spiritual leader, savvy businesswoman, bold adventurer, devoted humanitarian, and determined individual, Mother Cabrini inspires our present day commitment to service and education with a global perspective.

Her shining example fuels our belief that Villa students can and do change the world.
