Dear Villa Community,
The new school year is upon us, and we look forward to the opportunity again to continue with in-person learning. The faculty and staff utilized the past school year to grow beyond measure, to meet challenges with positive attitudes and a nod to the "silver lining" in all situations. Our students and families embraced the unique year in the true Benedictine spirit of community.
The tremendous support of our Villa community is truly appreciated. In a year where our high school was awarded a third National Blue Ribbon, two seniors earned a perfect ACT score, and college offers and acceptances were received from New York University to the University of Notre Dame, we focused on going above-and-beyond in all we do. Niche.com rated our high school as the # 2 Best Catholic High School in Kentucky, the top Catholic high school in the Northern Ky. area, and one of the Top Ten private high schools in Greater Cincinnati. In addition, Cincy Magazine readers voted our high school as the Best ACT/SAT Prep school. We even have TWO National Merit Finalists! Villa Madonna Academy Elementary School is ranked by niche.com as the top elementary school in the area, and Cincy Magazine readers also voted our elementary school as the best in the area!
There is much excitement as we announced the public phase of the Transform Out Future Treasure Our Tradition capital campaign. Plans are underway for the renovation of the Center Building and the creation of a STEM wing for high school and junior high students. Your support continues to be greatly appreciated.
In the spirit of St. Benedict, our commitment to you is this: We vow to Listen. Learn. Lead. Love. Together we remain strong. We help our students to become leaders and to develop as reflective disciples in a world that continually presents the unknown. Together, we welcome the challenges with open hearts and minds. We are strong. We are Benedictine. We are Villa.
Let us embrace the days ahead as "always we begin again."
Mrs. Pamela McQueen
Executive Director/High School-Junior High Principal
