Villa Madonna Academy Elementary School is a private, K-6, Catholic school rooted in the Benedictine traditions of scholarship, service and hospitality. The faculty, in partnership with parents and the school community, provide a learning environment that encourages students to realize their fullest potential by helping them to become lifelong learners, engaged citizens and reflective disciples.
The success of Villa Madonna Academy is attributed to the strong Benedictine philosophy that permeates the school. Each day, students participate in a stimulating, nurturing environment where their needs are met. Passionate teachers create lessons that cultivate students' interests to help them grow through differentiated activities. Supportive parents ensure their children are prepared for school and ready to learn each day.
Perhaps the most powerful instructional development has been the implementation of a professional learning community where teachers work collaboratively to meet the needs of all students, align curriculum, and use data to drive decisions. Teachers strive to use best practices in instruction and assessment. Teachers collaborate with one another to create a learning atmosphere that is both challenging and stimulating.
Because of the strong commitment to the school's mission, Villa Madonna Academy students are: critical thinkers who embrace problem solving through creativity and collaboration; prepared for rigorous academic programs and the opportunities of a global society; committed to prayer and service; and confident leaders who positively impact the community.
