A Powerful Experience Fully Focused on Girls
维拉是一所女子学校. It is our sole mission to meet girls’ educational needs, to teach to their many strengths and to create an environment in which they will thrive. 这是我们自1932年以来的承诺, and today we offer a model of single-sex learning validated in national re搜索. At Villa, every student voice heard in class is a girl’s. Every standout performance, whether in science or sports or service, is a girl’s. 每个学生领袖都是女生. And every expectation is that our girls will achieve on par with the best students anywhere.
我们的承诺: 作为一个别墅女孩, 你会有变得聪明的自由, 要有创意, 要坚强, 受到启发, 成为朋友, 做你自己.
Villa offers each of its girls the chance to receive an educational experience second to none. Our program combines high expectations with an equally high degree of support. 三个层次的课程——学术课程, Honors and Advanced Placement—ensure exactly the right challenge for every student, 包括最好的. 小类, 学生与教师的比例很低，只有8:1, and an exceptionally dedicated faculty all combine to create a personal learning experience. Extra help and extra challenges are always available; plus, many special opportunities meet students’ individual interests and talents. 超越计划—providing specialized one-on-one support to students diagnosed with mild learning disabilities—is unique among area girls schools.
我们的承诺: At Villa, we will challenge you—and help you—to be your very best.
At Villa, we put our faith in action through service, helping people across our region and beyond. Whether our students and teachers are working in a soup kitchen or nursing home, volunteering with homeless people in Camden or children in Haiti, they interact directly with those they are helping. We prepare for these experiences and process them afterward through individual and group reflections, drawing insights about our world and ourselves. Community service stands out as Villa’s single most popular student activity, and one of our school’s greatest points of pride.
我们的承诺: At Villa, you will grow as a person by caring for other people.
At Villa, our faith is at the heart of everything we do. We work every day to model the belief of the Sisters of St. 卡西米尔的信仰生活, 爱, 和服务, and to live by the words of our Foundress, 玛丽亚·考帕斯母亲:“总是更多, 总是更好的, 永远带着爱.” Our active Campus 部 program welcomes every student—of any religious background—to serve the community as part of her own spiritual journey. Highlights of spiritual life include the celebration of the liturgy, an excellent theology curriculum spanning all four years, and student-organized class retreats that are deeply meaningful and memorable.
我们的承诺: At Villa, you will be guided and supported in your individual spiritual growth.
Outstanding Offerings in Arts, 体育运动, and Student Activities
Every Villa girl has the chance to shine in many ways—as a scholar, 一个运动员, 一个艺术家, and a leader—and we celebrate achievements in all these realms. Our programs reflect a commitment to both quality and inclusiveness. The talented swimmer, soccer player, musician, or painter can pursue her passion to the fullest. 同时, girls are fully supported in exploring interests that are completely new—much more so than is possible at most schools. 就像在教室里一样, our signature strength is personal attention: the individual guidance and support of dedicated teachers, 教练和顾问.
我们的承诺: At Villa, you will have the chance to develop all your many talents.
学生 leave Villa ready for the full range of challenges they will face in college, from writing clearly and persuasively to managing their time effectively. Our graduates—including those at the most competitive institutions—consistently report that their Villa experience provided them with a superior preparation. However, the impact of a Villa education goes far beyond college. Our alumnae speak about experiences of personal transformation— about the confidence they acquired here and the hunger for learning, about strengthening their foundation in faith and forming the most important friendships of their lives. This is the lasting power of a Villa education.
我们的承诺: You will leave Villa with a strong sense of independence and confidence, ready for the challenges of higher education—and so much more.
