Middle School Students Head to NYC to Study Immigration History

Start spreadin' the news..they want to be a part of it...New York, New York!  That's right, Villa Middle School Students will be headed to the Big Apple this spring to take part in an immersive educational experience centered on the history of immigration in America. Villa's founder, St. Francis Cabrini, is the Catholic patron saint of immigrants. As a school rooted in her legacy and in Catholic Social Justice, this trip to New York (with the lens of past European immigration and current immigration) brings our values, mission and heritage to life. Says Andrés Arteaga, Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, "This trip is an extension of our Middle School Religion Curriculum, wherein we study the essential Catholic teachings of respecting all human dignity and welcoming the foreigner."
