About Villa Maria Academy Lower School
Who We Are
Since 1872, the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary have been committed to the spiritual formation and education of young girls. A strong legacy unites with innovation on the picturesque 30 acre campus of Villa Maria Academy, a private girls lower school near Malvern, PA.
Villa Maria Academy blends spirituality with academics in a nurturing learning environment for students, with a focus on leadership and service.
Villa Maria Academy is designed to meet the educational needs and unique learning style of each girl. Villa students are challenged daily to be fearless in the classroom and take risks that are not available in the co-ed learning environment. Dynamic classroom settings and curriculum development are both intentional and research based. Integration of technology in all core subjects gives Villa students advantages that encourage resourcefulness in the pursuit of wisdom throughout their educational journey.
Girls learn in different ways than boys, at different rates and at different times in their developmental stages. We know that girls learn better in an environment where each student is able to be empathetic to one another. Collaboration and communication are grounded in the ability to empathize — a skill for which girls’ brains are hard-wired. By capitalizing on girls’ innate strengths we can help secure their success for the future.
Why a Private Education?
Private schools provide more support, more educational opportunities and individual attention for each student to grow into their unique self.
At Villa, teachers are sensitive to the needs of each child and work to address those needs within a structured setting which provides the support needed for growth. While encouraging students to be creative and innovative, the teachers at Villa foster the students capacity to embrace leadership opportunities.
