“I attended Lower Villa from third through eighth grade. These were happy years filled with cherished memories – among them, getting to play Joseph in the drama club’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, participating in the Art After School program, Mission Day, and May Procession. I had incredible teachers who nurtured my talents, and I forged lifelong friendships. Along with my parents, Villa provided me with a foundation that would allow me to navigate life effectively. As an adult, I can now fully appreciate my years at Villa and what they meant for me. In addition to a top-notch education, Villa instilled invaluable principles such as compassion and kindness, respecting others, confidence, showing gratitude, and having a positive attitude. But most importantly, it’s where I learned about faith—faith in myself and trust in God and His plan for me.”
