Due to the continued unhealthy air quality in Seattle, Villa Academy's campus will be closed to all students through Friday, September 18, 2020.
There will be no preschool classes on campus and the supervised on-line instruction for students through the EDP program will not meet on campus.

On-line instruction will take place as previously planned and faculty/staff members will be allowed to use their Villa Academy classroom, if necessary, to provide on-line instruction.

Faculty Spotlight

Meet Dr. Patrick Marti

Middle School Science Teacher

“It’s important for students to apply science in a hands-on way, solve real-life problems, and demonstrate teamwork and leadership in the process.”

Villa's campus provides unique opportunities to explore science with the expert guidance of Dr. Marti, who studied chemical and biomolecular engineering at Johns Hopkins, and completed his Ph.D. in natural sciences from Cambridge University.

Whether engaged in Life Science, Earth Science, Physics, or Chemistry, Villa's curriculum incorporates the Next Generation Science Standards, an internationally recognized set of skills valued in scientists.

Applying what they learn in class to real life, and making it personal, means students are powerfully invested in their learning.
