Learning today means more than memorizing facts. It means learning to learn for a lifetime. Parents and educators know that the school library is key to teaching students not just to read but to practice the skills they need to seek, evaluate and use information throughout their lives.
The libraries and technology services at Villa Maria Academy aim to provide students and teachers with a variety of resources and materials they need to discover their passions, reinforce their knowledge, and invent a new way of looking at the world while practicing and instilling 21st century skills.
