Engaging compassionate and confident learners for lives of infinite possibility.

Core Values

Cabrinian Tradition
The Cabrinian tradition of teaching is dedicated to educational excellence and the development of the whole child to fullness of person. Our graduates are well on their way to emotional, intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social maturity as they initiate their high school experience and seek new opportunities to learn, grow, and give to others.

Skills Mastery
Our graduates possess a mastery of academic and social skills through a deep, inclusive, and rich learning community that features excellence in instruction, curriculum, and facilities, and is consistent with a child centered educational approach. At the time of graduation, students have developed the essential academic and social skills to succeed in high school and later in life.

Cultural Competence
Our graduates have a cultural competence achieved through knowledge of the needs and attributes of many communities and are beginning to prepare for the day when they will take a place in these communities as competent, concerned, and responsible members.

Compassion and Service
Our graduates are on the threshold of moving beyond self-interest in their relationships to treating others with kindness and compassion as required by our faith.

Pursuit of Excellence and Expectation of Integrity
Our graduates have a desire and ability to pursue excellence in their lives. They are persons of integrity who conduct themselves accordingly in their personal relationships and their work in the community.

Mother Cabrini portrait


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.
