The Villa Values are evident every school day in grade school at St. Ursula Villa, where the emphasis on academic excellence and whole child development truly shapes the lives of our children—the leaders of tomorrow. Villa students in 1st–8th grade, partnering with their teachers and parents, set high expectations in all areas of learning and development. Each elementary student's unique talents are nurtured; individual needs are met by a caring staff. Prayer and worship, reflection and service to others are an integral part of the Villa way of life.
