Cultivating Curiosity & Compassion

Villa Academy is a community of inspired, inquisitive faculty and staff passionate about our mission, our students, our disciplines, and our connections to one another.

Applying to Villa

At Villa Academy, we’re dedicated to the holistic development of children—mind, body, and spirit.

We strike a true balance between dynamic, inquiry-based learning and our Cabrinian tradition of whole-child education.

We empower our students to be active agents of their own intellectual growth in preparation for lives of service and purpose. We collaborate and challenge one another in a spirit of inquiry and growth, inspiring and supporting our lifelong-learning adults. 

As an inclusive, independent school community, all identities, backgrounds, and faiths are welcomed and celebrated here. We equally focus on students’ academic and moral development through authentic connections to our greater whole and in doing so, we develop globally-minded citizens who will help change the world, in all the ways it really matters.

The Villa Difference


Villa is the only independent school in the city of Seattle nurturing the holistic development of children: mind, body, and spirit. Dedicated to inquiry-driven, student-centered academic excellence, Villa simultaneously tends to whole child growth and integrated health, informed by clear and compelling research on the powerful influence of nature, spirituality, and social-emotional intelligence on academic thriving. Our empowered students become stewards of their lives, caretakers of their mental and social wellbeing, and custodians of the environment. Villa firmly stands in commitment to the transformative power of our Cabrinian tradition of “education of the heart.”
