Dear Villa Community,

A new year affords so many opportunities to learn something new, to reach beyond our perceived capacities, to embrace the possibilities.  Excitement abounds every day here at Villa as we grow both academically and spiritually.

Our students and faculty continue to challenge themselves to be the best they can be.  A perfect ACT score, a 1000-point basketball milestone, acceptance into the California Institute of Technology, academic scholarships from the High School Placement Test - what a great year thus far!  The collaborative relationship between teachers and families creates a learning community where anythihng is possible.

As we move forward in planning for our future, Villa’s five-year Strategic Plan is the foundation for such endeavors.  In addition, Villa’s Feasibility Study is complete, and we appreciated working with Johnson Grossnickle and Associates.  We are excited to plan for the renovation of the Center Building and the creation of a STEM wing for high school and junior high students.  Too, the roof on our main mid-century building will need to be replaced.  The support of our Villa stakeholders will be much appreciated as we plan for our exciting future!

May you enjoy the remainder of the school year. Pope Francis reminded us that "joy springs from a grateful heart," and so his words are the theme for our  school year.  Today, and always, let us find joy in all we do, and let us see the beauty in the world and love life -because that is Villa.  We are Villa.

God’s Peace,

Mrs. Pamela McQueen

Executive Director/High School-Junior High Principal
