Visit Villa! 

Explore Villa Joseph Marie via our virtual Open House right here on our website!  Tour our campus, hear from administration, staff, and parents, and even tune in to a student Q&A session. We can't wait for you to visit Villa in person, but until that can happen safely, please explore our school virtually. If there are any additional questions that you have, please feel free to reach out to our Admissions Director, any of the contacts listed with the videos provided, or complete the form below.

We hope to meet you in person at one of our upcoming events! 
6th & 7th Grade Practice Test: Friday, July 17 (Click to register.)
Fall Open House: Sunday, October 4

We had sincerely hoped to be able to welcome you into our school building to meet you in person, but we hope that these videos will give you a taste of what it's like to be a part of the Villa family. Even though the majority of the videos below were not filmed at Villa, our staff, students, and families truly convey their Jem spirit — even while at home. *If you prefer, all of our Open House videos are also available for viewing on Villa's Open House Youtube playlist by clicking here.
