Villa Victoria Academy is a great school and I believe I am getting a wonderful education. Having a sister who just graduated from Villa, I saw the many doors it opened for her and how VVA made it possible to attend one of the top 10 business schools in America with a scholarship. All the teachers at Villa have their students' best interests in mind and will always go out of their way to help me or any other student. Not only am I receiving an excellent education from Villa but it also surrounds me in an environment that is nurturing and encouraging. I am around people who are always willing to help and are accepting of everyone. Being a small community also allows us to be close-knit. This creates a sisterhood and familial feeling in school and even outside of school. Not only am I happy with the young lady I am becoming from VVA's influence, but also my parents and other family members. My Villa experience is one I will cherish forever.

I removed my daughter from Villa as she came home telling me how mean the other kids were to her. What really got me was the constant worksheets she did in school as opposed to having texts or an online book. For what you pay, the price doesn't equate to what you get. Sorry, at one point this school was a fine institution that empowered young women. Today, the school runs on it's past reputation.

Vva is comparable to a camp. A lot of the teachers give busy work just to keep us from using our cell phones. And YES girls DO use their phones during class. Some teachers see it and look the other way if your family is important enough. Some just don't care. A few actually follow the rules. Example: uniforms are to be just above the knee. Look at the pictures on the web site, fb page or snap chats and you'll notice no one follows that rule. I have been at vva since 6th grade and have asked my parents if I can transfer. I am hoping they will eventually say yes. I am tired of snotty girls.......

My family has had the good fortune of having two daughters attend Villa Victoria Academy. Both from Pre-K at age 4. Our oldest daughter graduated Villa and is now a college Sophomore and we are receiving a significant return on our investment in a Villa education in the form of academic merit and community scholarships. Our youngest daughter is a Junior at Villa and is rapidly preparing for the next chapter in her academic life. In addition to academic preparation for university life, the environment at Villa is in alignment with the values we as adults hope to impart to our children, so they represent themselves, their families and their communities in the most positive manner possible. As a father, I am most proud of how my daughters and their classmates conduct themselves socially away from the school. It is great to see them carry themselves as strong, confident young ladies in a world that does not always hold those character traits in as high esteem as "old school" home training demanded. The all girls environment at all grade levels provides the right atmosphere for the building blocks young ladies will need to compete in a global economy. Sincerely, Proud Villa Father

Villa Victoria Academy . Can't say enough about Villa Victoria Academy . I have 2 daughters who have been enrolled at Villa Victoria since Pre K . One recently graduated ( 2 yrs ) ago and the second is prepping for college (11th ) . Both have nothing but great things to say regarding the education they got and continue to get from Villa and it administration . The support , love , family atmosphere and beautiful milieu with a Christian teaching is NOT what you will receive in Public schools. Are there any kid issues , of course but they are all handled in a professional , supportive manner. Villa is truly a SECRET in Mercer COUNTY and the student population is quite diverse . Oh , did I tell you my daughter who graduated go accepted in a top notch university and our college bill is less than tuition @ Villa Victoria Academy. SO a Villa education is a true investment and truly develops confident , independent future female leaders. A Lifer Parent of 2 VILLA GIRLS :)

Villa Victoria is an amazing school with a tremendous administration. Whenever you raise a concern, it is immediately looked into and resolved and there is an open flow of communication. The workload is heavy but it's not busy-work. This is an academically rigorous school with high standards. The results are proof that the program works. Out of these small classes, students are routinely accepted into the most prestigious and competitive schools in the world. Student make college choices based on which schools are offering the most in scholarships. This all goes on in a nurturing environment of cooperation and support. Before long, it will be your family. Unlike many private schools, there is no elitist backdrop. The school is a wealth of diversity of race, socio-economic status, cultural background and religion. You just can't make a better choice for your daughter.

I couldn't be happier with the quality of education my daughter's are receiving at Villa Victoria. The teachers are wonderful and genuinely care about the success of the girls. The curiculum is challenging and the small class size ensures that each girl receives The attention she needs. I highly recommend Villa Victoria.

Ah. Towards the end of summer and I'd dreading going back. Unneeded assignments that the teachers will undoubtedly not read and in which we will probably be unfairly graded on. Pressure during the year, and rude admin breathing down our necks, following us to the bathroom, not respecting personal space and privacy. FUN ( DO YOURSELF A FAVOR DON'T COME HERE)

As a student who has been attending the school for most of my academic career, I'd say Villa is a much better school than these negative reviews say. Of course it'll have it's flaws-Every school does. But the flaws are outweighed by the pluses! Because of the small class sizes, I learn more than I ever would in a big class and I receive extra help if I ever need it. When "bullying" incidents do arise, the school resolves the situations. Villa can't help that some people's kids are melodramatic and rude. As for "not enough electives," think logically- Why would they have 17 electives available when there aren't 500 students? I could go on and on about Villa's goodness, but I'll leave it at this. :)

Like any school, Villa has its ups and downs but after spending years here I have come to realize that the downs out weigh the ups by a lot. The smallness of the school creates an intimacy amongst the students, but also creates a bubble separate from the normal, real world. This school takes more time to discuss the dress code than on the education that is lagging behind other schools in the area. A vast majority of the teachers have been here for decades, and are BURNT OUT. There is no cafeteria service and there is no track. There is a VERY limited selection of electives due to the smallness of the school and pointless required courses such as chorus and art. The high school students are given little freedom and are often treated like babies by the administration. It is so frustrating to see a school with so much potential continuing to hold itself back.

My daughter attended Villa from K-6th. She's African American and I believe that played a part in why we were asked to leave. I was told in April how good her behavior was by the president and vice principal and six weeks later they informed us that they did not want us to return. Like the other negative review listed, the school did not follow the policies in their handbook. We went from one bad choice of words my daughter said to a classmate (which other girls in her class had said the same) to being asked to leave. If there were problems before this incident we were never informed. They told my daughter not to speak to the child (they were in the same class of 12) and asked us not to speak to the parents. Christ teaches us to forgive. They wouldn't even allow my child to apoligize to her classmate. They want you to believe in the "Villa family" but it's not a forgiving family . These are the values at Villa. I believe there are better choices in schools that live up to Christ's teachings

Honestly, I would not even give this school one star. I graduated not to long ago from Villa, and let me say it was a horrible experience. A huge bullying problem was and still is plaguing the school. Whoever says there was not/is not does no't know what he or she is talking about or his or her child was/is the bully. When a problem between the girls occurred during my years there, the administration did not follow its "rule book" it claims the school was run by and it did minimum if anything at all to take care of the well being of the students. I know so many girls who transferred out of Villa because of the other students and how the administration "handled" the situations. Because of this, the bullies believe they can get away with anything and never stop. This means, it even occurred inside the classroom and sometimes towards teachers. It takes a huge toll on the victims and those that stand up against the bullies. Some of the teachers and staff are truly amazing, but the rest are rude, unwilling to help students, and discouraging. Also, the technology and textbooks are greatly inefficient out of date. Thank God for college.

I really love Villa. I've been there for going on eight years, and they've been the best eight years of my life. The teachers are fantastic, and really care about the students, not just in an educational aspect either. The girls are wonderful and after being with certain girls for so long, you end up becoming a family when you finish. I really and truly LOVE Villa and I'm so happy I have been given the opportunity to attend Villa for so many years. I have faith that the next two years of my high school career will be just as fantastic, if not better. Take it from a student, Villa is a great place to be! :)

Villa Victoria Academy is a great school! They teach solid english, math, science and music without all the fluff. They develop creative, morally guided thinkers and doers within society. The girls that graduate from VVA are confident problem solvers that welcome a challenge. VVA is faithfully Catholic, and as faithful catholics, the staff and administration embrace all faiths. I am a graduate and a parent of a graduate. Some of my classmates are doctors, scientists, psychologists, mathematicians, artists, musicians, and good moms. Our money was well spent at Villa Victoria!

When my daughter first started Villa Victoria Academy in the lower school, she was a timid, shy little girl. The teachers at Villa challenged her, and help build up her self confidence. She formed many great friendships with the wonderful Villa girls. My daughter is currently attending Villa's High School and I have no doubt that she is receiving a first class education. Villa's rigourous college prep curriculum has landed many of its graduates into the colleges of their choice. Villa Victoria Academy is a well run school with strong leadership and excellent teachers. I am so glad we chose Villa for our daughter!

My daughter, who is now in high school, has been at Villa since Pre-K. She and the girls in her class grew up like siblings, close knit and absolutely loyal to one and other. I know that in Villa she has made lifelong friendships. The teachers have, in my experience, been very caring and committed, quick to detect and correct incipient flaws and warm in their praise. The school administration too are dedicated to creating strong, confident, independent girls who care about their contribution to the world. The main reason we chose a glrls' school was to give our daughter an educational environment that would nurture her self-esteem while giving her a strong education. I think in Villa we made the right choice.

My daughter currently attends Villa Victoria Academy, and I truly believe that this is one of the best decisions my husband and I have ever made. Villa s rigorous college prep curriculum well prepares its students for higher education and beyond. The teachers are wonderful and truly care about the education and growth of each student. The camaraderie of the girls is a joy to see. They are sisters in every sense of the word, and there is no doubt in my mind that they will be friends for life. I highly recommend Villa Victoria Academy to any parent seeking an education of the highest quality for their daughter.

Don't be fooled by the size of the school, it really means less than 30 girls per class! It means poor class choices, no teacher options, lacking technology and no place to hide from the pervasive bullying that exists between classes and in class. The administration is blind to these issues and inexcusable mistakes have cost this once proud school. Many other quality options in the area.

I have an only daugher and I would not trust her to any other school. I am an educator and I know exactly what I am looking for. The school offers challenging academics, character development, and a nurturing environment. They encourage the girls to be independent thinkers and to strive for excellence. If you have a daughter and you want her to have an education that will allow her to be successful in life, Villa is the school.

Villa Victoria is an absolutely remarkable school. From Pre-K through 12th, there simply is no better way to provide your daughter with every opportunity and advantage a school can offer. Girls receive a solid academic foundation beyond comparison. More important, however, is the development of 'self'. At its core, Villa is about becoming a balanced, responsible, unique and concerned citizen who understands the individual's role in humanity.

Villa Victoria is a school of supreme excellence. Each student's talents always shine. The high school women of Villa Victoria are poised, intelligent, and have a great understanding of their faith. The individual attention that each student receives is rare. Because of the small size of each class, your fellow classmates become your fellow sisters and your teachers become your friends. Villa Victoria is not only one of the best schools in its area, it is truly, one of a kind.
