Jody Elsner with two studentsDear friends,

Welcome to Villa's Preschool Program. Our classes for children ages 3, 4, and 5 are safe, nurturing places where preschoolers learn, explore, and discover.

We believe... play with a purpose
Our talented, experienced teachers enthusiastically encourage each child’s natural desire to explore. This desire drives the learning process. educating the whole child
Preparation for kindergarten and the higher grades requires both a strong academic foundation and the social/emotional skills necessary to thrive in our challenging Lower School program. a vibrant, inclusive community
Our preschoolers are part of the larger, active Villa Community. Preschoolers interact with older students as they move about the campus with regular visits to the library, gymnasium, and theater for school-wide events. Our buddy program pairs preschoolers with other students. While Catholic, Villa is not connected to a parish and all are welcome here.

...that children learn at different speeds.
Our “More Time for Five” program (P5) offers five-year-olds continued preparation for kindergarten that is more than a repeat of earlier preschool classes.

My colleagues and I invite you to find out more about our preschool programs by exploring our website or contacting our Admissions staff. We look forward to meeting you and your family!

An essential part of the STEAM initiative at Villa is ongoing faculty professional development.

Another wonderful day of working together as a community to care for our campus and celebrate spring!

During Advent Season, our entire community comes together to extend our helping hands to people in need outside our community.

Our Fall Community Stewardship Day was a huge success thanks to our hardworking volunteers. We celebrated fall and our community together as we worked to care for our amazing campus.

In honor of a beloved family dog, P5 students planted an oak seedling recently to provide shade and a beautiful view to future Villa students and families.


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.
