At Villa, we're known for our 11 state soccer titles (and counting!) and our other exceptional sports teams too, but that's just part of the story of Blue and Gold Athletics. The other part is about the chance to play even if you're completely new to a sport. It's about a program focused not on wins and losses but on teaching lessons for life.
At Villa, you'll find all the courses you would expect at any excellent college preparatory school, including 15 AP options and 22 Honors courses. You will also find some electives you might never have imagined, like Constitution: Crisis and the Court, or Mythos: An Exploration of Greco-Roman Mythology. From Women in Literature to Forensic Science, this is your chance to discover something new and amazing.
You will find a world of options for discovering and developing your creative talents. Work side-by-side with a practicing professional artist. Take to the stage for sold-out plays or as a part of award-winning musical ensembles. Choose classes that range from Dance and Drama to Music Theory and AP Portfolio Art.
From a lunchtime sing-along to a ghost tour during Vespers, and from our Back-to-School Dance to Spirit Week, life at Villa is full of much-loved traditions and chances to relax and have fun. Yes, we work hard, but the sound of laughter is never far away.
