Lifelong Learners

From our classroom educators to our administrative teams, our connected, engaged adult community is comprised of lifelong learners.

Our Mission

SCHOOLING OF THE MIND. EDUCATION OF THE HEART.

A Different Type of Educator

Needed are world-centric ethical capabilities and profoundly embodied situational awareness. Needed are collaborative and loving mindsets, able to deal with loss and tragedy, able to rebuild with resilience, able to innovate ceaselessly and with alacrity. Education must promote growth in new levels of maturity. We need a new kind of grown-up.

The Villa Difference

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.”
