Liz Willis, PhDHead of School
As a faith-centered educator who sees my work with students, families, faculty and staff as a vocation and not just a career, I’m inspired to take this step into service of Villa Academy and its people. I’m deeply grateful to the Board of Trustees for entrusting me with leading the community they love so dearly.

Welcome to Villa Academy!
It's an honor and joy having you find your way home to us. Here at Villa, we are an inclusive independent school community dedicated to whole child “education of the heart.” All of our programming–academic, co-curricular, philanthropic, and social–reiterates our deep investment in the holistic development of young people. We are in the business of relationships: we meet students where they are, and through demonstrated belief in their ability to thrive amidst challenge and opportunity, we support their growth as scholars, artists, athletes, and community members. Our inquiry-based educational program empowers students to be agents of their own learning, from the earliest years through the middle school grades. And, our deep investment in children’s spiritual development supports their growth in preparation for lives of service and purpose.
While our academic program honors the needs and curiosities of each child, our robust community engagement opportunities similarly offer something for everyone. We encourage all families to actively participate in the life of the school, as each member nurtures and edifies our community of belonging. There are countless options to engage in for both students and families, and we look forward to connecting across the year!
