Villa Madonna Academy High School Students Celebrate the Villa Community

Villa Madonna Academy High School is a co-ed school for grades 7-12 rooted in the tradition and teachings of St. Benedict. As a Catholic, Benedictine school in the Diocese of Covington, we stand proud in our tradition that began in 1904. Villa graduates serve in professions that vary from science to law, education to theater, and religious life to the Peace Corps. Villa graduates are committed to serving others through the Benedictine values of hospitality and respect, peace and service, scholarship and stewardship.

In a school committed to developing lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and reflective disciples, our faculty and staff dedicate themselves to developing critical thinkers prepared for rigorous academic programs in a global society. They are committed to helping our students become conscientious leaders who initiate change and serve others, who embrace opportunities for peace and stewardship. We are a welcoming community who values the dignity and diversity of others, and our Benedictine Mentor Program and Benedictine Exchange Program help students connect with their peers.

Our outstanding college-prep curriculum is constantly evolving with new AP, dual-credit, and faculty-designed courses. Our 60+ acre campus is home to outdoor classroom areas, a separate athletic facility, and spacious fields. Villa students can be found performing in our theater, collaborating in our Makerspace, creating original watercolors in the art studio, or engaging in a Roman battle on one of our beautiful hillsides overlooking the Ohio River.

Villa Madonna Academy High School graduates are truly inspired by a sense of community and Benedictine purpose.
