Last week we welcomed back students in grades K-8 for their first day of school!…
Middle school students were inducted into their Houses in a ceremony during Catholic School’s Week. The Middle School House System at Villa Maria Academy provides leadership opportunities among students and faculty in a way that is intentional and personal.
Villa Maria Academy groups its Middle School students into six different “houses.” Faculty act as Housemasters, and select eighth graders serve as the House Captains. Students and teachers work with each another outside of the classroom and students establish connections that transcend classrooms and grade levels.
The Middle School House System separates students and faculty into smaller communities. In those communities, leadership opportunities are purposefully and productively taught and embodied for the ultimate end of building a stronger school community.
