Community Service

Villa's tradition of service is grounded in the legacy of our founder, Mother Cabrini, who worked tirelessly to help those in need.

Throughout their years at Villa, students engage in age appropriate, hands-on service projects which are integrated with classroom instruction. These opportunities to put their education into action help students become aware of their ability to use their gifts and talents for the greater good.

For our younger students, this means service to the local Villa community through onsite activities and school-sponsored outreach.

Our middle school students are required to complete 9 hours of community service per trimester. Middle schoolers who perform a total of 125 hours or more over the 12 trimesters of middle school earn the Mother Cabrini Award for Excellence in Service upon graduation.

Respectful, compassionate, and willing to serve, Villa students are ultimately prepared to be powerful, effective agents of change.


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.
